Western Style Dressage Association of Canada

Western Dressage

Western 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 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 Dressage is used to improve the horses that you presently ride Western.  It is not based on a breed or type. 

The Association

The Western Style Dressage Association of Canada (WSDAC) was formed in 2011 and is a registered not-for-profit corporation in Canada.
