GGT-Footing Sponsors the 2015 WDAA World Championship Show


GGT -Footing ™ was thrilled to be a High Point Division Buckle Sponsor at the Western Dressage Association of America World Championship Show this year!  The event was held at Expo Square Tulsa, Oklahoma and was managed by the Pinto Horse Association of America.  GGT-Footing representative Catherine Trice not only attended the show, but was also pleased to attend the 6th Annual Meeting & Convention.  This gathering was where members of the board and general members from all across the country brought together ideas to help this growing discipline flourish.  “I thoroughly enjoyed working with the WDAA!” said Catherine.  “They were lovely hosts who instantly made me feel like I was part of their family.  I was known as their “guest of honor” rather than an outsider.  Everyone took the time to answer my questions, taught me about the rules of their organization, and explained their goals for the future.”

The mission of the Western Dressage Association® is to honor the horse and to value the partnership it has provided us on our American journey.  This was truly seen in all aspects of this show.  Any horse and any rider are welcome to participate!  Catherine notes, “It was amazing to watch so many different breeds show in the same arena.  And the way they were able to merge Classical Dressage with traditional Western movements was remarkable.  This riding style promotes such a beautiful partnership, it has inspired me to get involved on a personal level with my horse.”

During the awards ceremony on Sunday night, Catherine was proud to present belt buckles to the High Point winners for the Level 2 & Level 3 Open Classes.  Lynn Palm, on Larks Home Run, was the well-deserved winner for both of these awards.  As the show came to an end, the WDAA board members took the time to thank their sponsors and congratulate everyone on an exciting and successful year.  Then got straight to work planning for 2016 to be even bigger and better!  GGT-Footing is proud to have a partnership with such a fantastic non-profit organization, and looks forward to being involved again next year.
