Western Dressage at 2009 Shows

There was a news item a while back on the AMHA’s site about the new Western Dressage division:


Is this class being held at any shows this year?  I’ve been digging around but haven’t been able to find anything about this officially being offered as a competitive event at any Morgan shows this year.

    There are two western dressage classes being held at the Citrus Cup Regional, which is next week. I don’t know how many people will enter, but I can let you know when I get back :)

    I am going to Citrus Cup and have entered the classes however I can’t find any rules for the events except that Dressage Training Level 1 pattern will be used. I have the pattern but don’t know much else. I guess I’ll find out when we get there. Sounds like fun so my horse and I will give it a try. I wish someone would print up the rules.

    There is a new link to the new rules and specs on the AMHA website for Western Dressage. You can also find the link at: http://www.cowboydressage.com/news.html

    The classes are being offered at the Morgan Medallion and Mother Lode Show in CA this year.

    The Western Dressage went well at Citrus cup. The show as a whole was smaller this year. there were 2 of us in the Intro level and 2 of us in Training Level 1. I did find the rules before I left for the show. I got a score of 68% on the first test and 66.8 on the Training Level test 1. Not bad for a first try. It was fun and I’ll do it again. I know a few things I need to work on now. Hopefully more people will enter in the future.

    What about 2011? Does anyone know what shoes will host Western Dressage Classes?

    If you google Western Dressage Association… there is a formal organization that may have a concise list for you. Just a thought.

  9. In May, the Southern States Regional (NC) and in September, The East Coast Morgan Sport Horse Classic (VA) are both holding The Western Dressage Divisions. Visit the websites for details http://www.SouthernStatesmhs.org and ecmshc.org
