WDAA and HorseShow.com Offer New Rider Education Opportunities

Western Dressage Association and Horseshow.comThe Western Dressage Association® of America (WDAA) and HorseShow.com have partnered in unveiling two new programs for the benefit of riders; Western Dressage online clinics and reference videos of the Western Dressage tests.  The WDAA is excited for these offerings which give equestrians more opportunities to explore Western Dressage in an encouraging manner, consistent with the WDAA educational mission.

The Western Dressage online clinics are available via HorseShow.com.  These clinics give riders a fantastic opportunity to upload and submit a video of any Western Dressage test ridden at home or at a live show. For the inaugural clinic, acclaimed Western Dressage clinician, Jec Ballou will add her comments to videos, provide coaching feedback and suggest training exercises for improvement. Clinics are open to riders of all ages and ability as well as horses of all breeds and types.

Additionally to assist riders, trainers and judges, the WDAA and HorseShow.com have compiled video of various riders and horses working through each of the sixteen (16) Western Dressage Association Tests from Introductory Level through Level 2. These videos were filmed to show how the tests are ridden and the flow from one movement to the next. In mid-June, these videos will be available here on our website as well on the HorseShow.com Western Dressage page: http://www.horseshow.com/western-dressage.
