Last count was approximately 66 total rides. The classical dressage division had 67 rides. Plans are underway for Western Dressage to be at the Color Breed Congress in November with the possibility of having an all breed World Championship for Western Dressage.
They had approximately 200-300 people in attendance for Cliff Swanson’s clinic and 500 on the Internet. Monday’s attendance online was 2900 watching the classical dressage and on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 they had 5000 online viewers for Western Dressage!
Both Gerald Milburn, 8-time PtHA President & Chairman of the Past Presidents Committee, as well as, Darrell Bilke, PtHA CEO & Show Manager of PWC, were more than pleased with Cliff Swanson’s Western Dressage Clinics and the Western Dressage class participation. Gil Merrick, now COO of HorseShow.com, was also in attendance and sees a bright future for the triad of PtHA, WDAA & HorseShow.com partnerships.
My husband, Guy Brown, is grinning from ear to ear saying … “These are definitely exciting times for WDAA.”
