Input on Cowboy Dressage?

Went to a clinic in Tx a couple of weeks ago put on by Jack Brainard and Eitan Beth Halachamy at Craig Cameron's ranch. I was not familiar with Cowboy Dressage, but a friend asked me to go with her & so I played hooky from work and went. Wow! I was impressed by both the participants in the clinic and the instructors, particularly Eitan. I've done a little research since & I continue to be impressed. I know dressage is not exactly "new"... but I like the western spin on it and Eitan breaks things down in a way that I can understand. Anybody out there with first hand knowledge or opinions?

No experience or opinions, but I'd KILL to have been at that clinic! Lucky you!

Yes! I went to one of his clinics earlier this year. I picked up some really helpful tips.

Dreamcatcher, I'm really glad I went. I've ridden several different disciplines, showed Arabians in the 80's and am now "just" a trailrider, but I love to learn. Met folks that came from New Mexico and Nebraska to participate. Only cost $25 a day to audit, had I known how much I would get out of it I would have tried to make more than one day. Work is really cutting into my free time, lol.

LOL! I get that, about work. If I'd have known about the clinic I'd probably have tried to go. Of course, if you're not looking for things like that, you don't find them and I haven't been looking. I first heard about Eitan Beth-Halachmy in the late 90's or early 2000. Thought it was an interesting concept then, and now would really like to learn more.

We're having a show up near Sacramento next month. I hope I can get away from here for a day at least and watch. They do offer a Vaquero Dressage class, which I'm particularly interested in.

Initially I really disliked the idea of it, but it is becoming more popular than dressage where I live so I may have to give it a try

That sounds interesting. I wouldn't mind giving Western Dressage a try.

I think its great for people who have horses (like a couple of mine) that would never have the scope to go into higher level dressage but have the ability to 'do the moves' - they just don't look so impressive.
