TTT Education Program

Train the Trainers™ clinics were established by the Western Dressage Association of America in early 2012.  Intense national and international demand led Frances Carbonnel and Cliff Swanson, members of the WDAA Advisory Board to begin the development of a training curriculum which addressed the needs of equine professionals who were interested in training their horses and clients about Western Dressage.

Summer Fun

For many of us summer is the season of horse shows and holidays, having ‘fun in the sun’ and experiencing special moments.  WDAA knows that many of you are out enjoying this time with your horses and we hope that you will share your adventures with us on our Facebook page, in the Social Corral or by submitting a blog piece and photos for our website.  

While enjoying summer, the WDAA is also in preparation for our favorite events of the year – the WDAA Annual Convention and WDAA Western Dressage World Championship Show!  We are updating our World Show website at wdaaworldshow.org each time new information is released.  We hope that you will partake in these amazing events as a participant, exhibitor, vendor, enthusiast or even sponsor!  Your support for the discipline helps us bring the beauty and education of Western Dressage to more horse lovers.

Finally we hope to get your thoughts.  The feedback and insight of our members, friends, supporters and riders is so valued when it comes to the design and development of the programs associated with Western Dressage.  This newsletter contains a link to a brief survey that will help the WDAA with determining additional educational offerings and business partnerships.  Please take a few minutes to give us your ideas and comments.

As the daylight hours starts to shorten and our equestrian tans fade away, we hope you have many new, sweet summer memories to last forever!   

How Are We Doing?

The Western Dressage Association® of America highly values the perspective of the many riders and supporters sharing this journey.  As such, we are seeking your feedback on important factors of membership with the WDAA, the benefits for you and the significance of the organization in your life.  We hope that you will take a few minutes to share your experience with us.
