We honour the horse and diversity of all breeds. We value all level of riders and the partnership they share with the horse.
We will educate and promote this new discipline that unites East and West
Western Dressage is a recognized discipline in the United States Equestrian Federation and the Western Dressage Association of America is a USEF official recognized affiliate.
Western Style Dressage is about learning communication and an age old process of training for your equine partner and how you can improve yourself and your horse with a progressive system.
It is pointless to define a Western Style Dressage horse and what it should look like. Just like it is in the traditional dressage ring, horses come in many shapes and sizes. Western Style Dressage is used to improve the horses that you presently own and ride Western. It is not based on a breed or type.
Western Style Dressage Association is a registered not-for-profit corporation with the Canadian government and is the only Canadian association that is in alliance with the Western Dressage Association of America.
