Western Dressage Clinics are everywhere…

With the emergence of Western Dressage, we have seen a huge increase in clinics and shows popping up all over the USA. One particular series that has been successful and continues to help support the Western Dressage Association® of America’s educational mission… Ace High Western Dressage!

Our first in our series of three Western Dressage Clinics was a success!

This is a progressive training series where we work with riders who are just learning about this exciting new sport of Western Dressage. We work with them from start to finish to give them the tools to give a finished product so they can show their horses in a Western Dressage. This very first Clinic was held February 9th and 10th in Lincoln, California.

The day started with check-in and a nice breakfast that was provided. There was a detailed description and demonstration of the gaits that are recognized by the Western Dressage Association of America. We had a fabulous demonstration on advanced maneuvers by Vivian and her Dutch Warmblood, Reveler; and Lisa Horning, on her National Champion Morgan Stallion “NVS MIDAS”. The training continued with marking out the geometry of the arena with chalk lines and getting familiar with the basic maneuvers and geometry. The riders prepared and rode the maneuvers of the first Introductory Test in preparation for the next day.

Sunday there was step-by-step instruction on how to ride the first Introductory  Level Test. The riders improved tremendously by the end of the session and felt more comfortable and confident with the test.

Our next Clinic will be held April 13 & 14, 2013. Again this is a PROGRESSIVE SERIES that is designed to build on one another, as students progress in their knowledge of Western Dressage. Our training and series are designed to build a road map from start to finish. Please go to our website at http://www.acehighwesterndressage.com/ for detailed information.
