And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the spirit of the 2014 WDAA World Championship Show, to be Nov. 1-2 in Tulsa, Okla. Fun will be had, and lots of it!

Plan to join the WDAA in Tulsa, Oklahoma for our 5th Annual Convention and the 2nd Annual WDAA World Championship Horse Show which is open to all breeds. The Embassy Suites in Tulsa will be the site of two days of meetings and round table discussions.

The World Championship show will be at the world class Built Ford Tough Livestock Arena at Expo Square. WDAA is proud to host this event with the Pinto Horse Association in conjunction with the Color Breed Congress.

Saddle Up Party completes the Weekend of FUN!

To be held at the Tulsa Expo Center on Nov. 2 after the show’s conclusion.We’d like to offer a western dressage salute and much appreciation to the American Morgan Horse Association for sponsoring the Saddle Up Party,.

Whether you’re in Tulsa or across the globe
, you’ll want to purchase an admission ticket to the party. Because there’s a very important reason that we’re calling it a Saddle Up Party. Thanks to a generous donation from Western Dressage Riding Gear, we will give away a custom Harmony Western Dressage Saddle as a door prize. Need not be present to win.

This line of saddles is designed by western dressage riders for western dressage riders, and they allow horse and rider to feel and move as one. So come check out this one-of-a-kind rig, which will have a custom 2014 WDAA logo tooled into the fenders and is valued at $2,485.
