In 1997, the California Dressage Society started a series of clinics to honor Linda O’Carroll, who donated an endowment to fund Adult Amateurs’ education. For two decades, amateur dressage riders who normally would not have an opportunity to train with top professionals in their sport, receive the chance to learn from the best due to the generosity of Mrs. O’Carroll. Each CDS Chapter sponsors at least one qualified rider annually.
