WDAA Horse Lifetime Points & Awards Program

The Western Dressage Association® of America’s educational mission focuses on “honoring the horse” and the “value of the partnership of horse and rider”. Our Horse Lifetime Points and Awards Program recognizes and celebrates the devotion of this relationship through our awards offerings. The WDAA Horse Lifetime Points and Awards Program (WHLPAP) tracks points achieved by a horse with their riding partner throughout their Western Dressage career.
