The annual CSDEA Omnibus is a spiral-bound booklet containing valuable information about local recognized competitions, clinics, schooling shows, and other events for the upcoming year, plus area business listings and a member directory. It is printed and mailed in mid-February to all members, with additional mailings to late renewers/joiners who elect to receive it throughout the year, as supplies last.

For questions or to get involved, contact the Omnibus Committee.


Advertising with the CSDEA is a great way to reach eventing and dressage riders throughout our region. You can find advertising forms, which include information about sizes and pricing, in the Documents section of our site under “Advertising Forms.” If you have any questions about advertising in Cross Country or on the website, please contact Jessica Foschi at For Omnibus advertising, contact Christina Moutray,
Cross Country Magazine: We offer photo and classified ads for any budget and our magazine reaches hundreds of members. We also offer a few color ads each issue on a first-come, first-served basis.
CSDEA Omnibus: The annual Omnibus is a treasured resource that lives at members’ barns, in their glove boxes, and on their nightstands. It is daydreamed over, marked up, and thumbed through from when it hits mailboxes in February until the end of the season the following fall. In addition to publishing show bills for your clinic or schooling show, we offer a range of business advertising options. 
Online Business Listings: All business listings run from February 1 – January 31. An online business listing is included with any advertisement in our annual Omnibus. To get your business listed at any time throughout the year, please complete the Business Advertising - Website Listing form found in the “Advertising Forms” section of Documents.
