Helpful Hints to Navigate the New Site

      Comments Off on Helpful Hints to Navigate the New Site

CTDA has a new website – helpful hints to find your way!
Yes, we have a new website and if you read on, this article may help you to find what you need, and to learn about our new site at the same time.

Where do I find info on shows and events? Our calendar is populated with all the schooling and recognized shows conducted by the CTDA. In addition, we are listing the Dressage at Greystone series hosted at Riverdale Farms in Lafayette, TN, and any other shows or clinics we know about and have been asked to list. CTDA sanctioned shows will carry this designation on the calendar so you will know that your scores count to CTDA year-end awards. Hovering over the calendar entry with your mouse will give more information on that event, and if you click on the event, you can get even more.
So where is the show entry form? Entry forms for schooling shows and recognized shows will be under the ‘Resources/Form Listing’ tab. Hover over ‘Resources’ and then click on ‘Form Listing’. This resource has all CTDA forms – Membership (online and printable pdf); Awards requirements and Rider Report form; Shows and Clinics entry forms and State Championship requirements; Education/CTDA’s Annual Scholarship form and requirements, and Advertising and Sponsorship rates.
I need to renew my membership; what do I do? Glad you asked! Clicking on the ‘Membership’ tab will get you all the information you need about the benefits of being a CTDA member, in case you didn’t already know. (This is the place to point new members so they can find out the great benefits of being part of our GMO too!). Click on ‘Complete your membership form now’ to get to the online form. Shortcut: If you hover over ‘Membership’ and then click on ‘Membership Form’, you will see the new online membership form. Just complete the online form, type the two anti-spam keywords at the bottom, hit ‘Send’, and “Voila!” your form is on the way! You can also continue to use PayPal for membership fee payment. 
I have a pretty good saddle for sale; how can I advertise to the Club? Click on ‘Advertising’; all CTDA’s rates for show programs, and newsletter and web rates and info are here.  Send your ad to the contact person, and we will get your ad posted appropriately. Our Classified Ads are divided into sub-categories of Horses, Tack, Farm Equipment, and Riding Apparel. Detailed information on rates and ad listing may be discussed with the CTDA Advertising contact.
I missed the last issue of Transitions; where can I find a copy? Past issues of Transitions are posted under ‘About’. Again, hover over the tab and you’ll see links for ‘Newsletters’ and for ‘CTDA Bylaws’. Read about our GMO from great personal articles in Transitions, and also learn more about how the GMO is governed by reading through the Bylaws. 
So, what else is new on this site? Wow, you’re asking some great questions! New to this site:
– a photo gallery. Send us your favorite pix of your horses, ponies, foals, riding/equestrian accomplishments, cute pet shots, and we’ll review for posting. Your photos help tell the story of our GMO; they answer the question: “who is” CTDA?
– Online payment for schooling shows. Pay for your classes/shows as you enter, using PayPal. Our schooling show secretary will get notification of your entry and payment, then all you’ll need to do is show up at the event, and sign in as you pick up your number. A signature will be required to complete your entry. **Online PayPal option is for CTDA schooling shows ONLY at this time.**
– Calendar Quick Reference – the Home page has a list of the next 5-6 weeks of events on the CTDA calendar for your reference.
– Quick Ref Banner – See the top of the Home page; our next show will be listed here and with a click of your mouse you can get the most current information AND register/enter if you care to. In the case of shows not run or organized by the CTDA, you will be directed to the appropriate contact for that event.
