That got me very interested, I just watched a video about western dressage and I think it is amazing! (even though I try to learn classical dressage)

Is there info somewhere about this one? Sacramento is my neck of the woods and I know there should be a couple of interested people at my barn (myself included if work allows).

Ridden in a few 'Wessage' shows. Still train Dressage and show, but I liked blinging my horse out. I was told he still moved more like a Dressage mount vs. a Wessage mount....a little to forward

Oh, please, not "Wessage"! It sounds like a name for a massage oil. Can we just use "Western Dressage"?

While I have no real interest in Western Dressage,I have a trainer friend that it interested in it. He is an older cowboy that appreciates a good bridle horse & one that has been taught good body control/suppleness. He Rode/put some training my mare for 30 days a few years back & he always thought she'd be good doing that.Since then she has had more training & showing. The more I ride her & watch her I can see where she would excel at it. Last time I saw him I told him he can borrow her for his next clinic,lol. Actually hope he takes me up on it

Just keep in mind "Western Dressage" and "Cowboy Dressage" are two different things!

I only have experience with the former and my ladies are very excited that they can continue to ride in their Western saddles while pursuing dressage, and even go to some of the same competitions as their daughters. Not all dressage shows in the area are offering WD, but I did at all my shows last year with marginal turnout. I am hoping to get a better turnout this year!

They are two separate entities:

Western Dressage Association of America | (now affiliated with USEF)

Cowboy Dressage? At Wolf Creek Ranch (The OP's clinicians)

Cowboy dressage is not affiliated with WD, and WD is not affiliated with CD.
Both are Trademarked, or copyrighted or something. Whatever. Lots of legal mumbojumbo and political mud slinging going on about the difference lately. WDAA is gaining lots of traction however, hence the increased popularity of WD.
