|Welcome to Austin Dressage Unlimited, the newly created dressage organization based in Austin, Texas. We are a Group Member Organization (GMO) of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) in Region 9. But ADU is not intended to be localized just in the Central Texas area. We welcome dressage enthusiasts from anywhere and everywhere to join in this uniquely organized dressage club.|
So, what is so unique about ADU?
A good place to begin is our mission statement:
“To promote education in the dressage community
while encouraging advancement towards goals
through a mutual support among friends.”

|A very enthusiastic group of judges, riders, trainers attended my course Jan 10-11th, organized by ADU. The organization was, from the preparations on up to the departure back to Holland, detailed with an excellent follow up. I would say in judge’s terms a 10+. The college room was an ideal place to teach, with high quality audio and computer systems. The group wanted to learn as much as possible and was very concentrated and coöperative. The hospitality great, with very helpful and friendly people. I enjoyed the whole 2 days and am happy I have some new friends in the Texas area.
