SLADS needs your participation!

Recent SLADS newsletters have provided information on the challenges SLADS is currently facing.  We need your active participation to renew our commitment to the original mission of SLADS “to foster an interest in, and greater understanding of, dressage among people in the greater St. Louis area. The programs SLADS sponsors shall be primarily educational in nature and shall offer a framework in which individuals can progress with their education and the training of their horses.”  Please consider joining one of the committees that enable SLADS to fulfill this mission. The committees are truly the foundation of SLADS and are a wonderful way to obtain the volunteer hours necessary for year-end recognition!
2020 Election

 Your SLADS Board Members and Committee Members are hard at work planning the 2020 Recognized and Schooling Shows as well as our Educational Events for the year. If you'd like to Join A Committee, we'd love to have your help. If you have suggestions for things you'd like to see in 2020, please email us at 


Our new website has a members only Forums Page!

Please note that because this is a new website, it is also a completely new membership portal and none of the old information was transferred to the new portal. If you were previously a member with a login on the old website, you will need to choose “join” rather than “renew” for this one time only.
