The Alberta Dressage Association, incorporated on May 11, 1978, is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to foster the sport of dressage by encouraging participation in competitions, demonstrations, lectures and other activities which increase knowledge and understanding of good horsemanship. ADA also provides a uniform system of training not only for riders but also for trainers, instructors and judges. ADA is represented around the province by regional groups which conduct their own activities and programs while receiving the benefits of a provincial affiliation. The Calgary branch is known as Calgary Area / Alberta Dressage Association. An affiliation is also maintained with the Canadian Dressage Owners and Riders (CADORA), the national sports governing body for dressage. Through CADORA, the ADA ensures country-wide communication regarding dressage and facilitates events of a national scale such as the National Dressage Championships. Local dressage shows are also held throughout the province under the auspices of CADORA and must follow the strict regulations laid down by the Canadian Equestrian Federation. Participants in local shows qualify for various championships and awards.
