WHAT IS FADS?
Frederick Area Dressage Shows (FADS) is a web site that lists independent casual dressage schooling shows (not combined training shows, though eventing tests can be usually ridden) located in the Frederick County, Maryland, area. FADS is not an organization - it does not hold shows, it does not have members and it does not have any money. The FADS web site is a free marketing service for farms that hold casual dressage schooling shows; the site communicates their show information to Frederick County area dressage riders. For riders, the FADS web site is a way to find and participate in casual dressage schooling shows without all the "red tape" and high cost. Read more ...
