western dressage !

Does anyone have an experience with western dressage ?

Im going to be taking my pony to a show and doing western dressage just for fun. Its been 5 years since he's been shown. We used to do novice level eventing and he was EXTREMELY successful. He is a naughty little guy =P

I just want to take him because he misses showing and my moms horse needs a buddy. I don't really know how to ride western, but I never ride scout english any more.

Has anyone ever done it or have any tips ?

Here is a link to the tests

Western Dressage Tests

I will definitely be doing primary tests.

Here are some pics of scoutie, just for fun =]

I am a Horse Illustrated (magazine) subscriber and they had a section on Western Dressage in one of their issues. I bet they'd have some info on the website.

IMO western dressage is more "western" than "dressage" so maybe try posting in the western section of the forum?

Im not so sure, its judged by dressage judges...

Have you tried this website? Western Dressage Association® of America | I just recently learned about western dressage so can't really answer any questions but that site would probably be a good starting point.
