I belong to a sport horse club. We discussed the possibility of including classes for WD in our show next year. It appears that our breed will be sanctioning these class in the future as there is growning interest. Personally, I think activities that promote any and all breeds, get people to improve their knowledge and skills and training for their horses is a good thing.
I also understand there is a difference between Cowboy Dressage and Western Dressage. I need to educate myself but I look at this new interest as a good thing.
