Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2014 Saddle-Up & Rider High-Point Program!
The mission of the Western Dressage Association® is to honor the horse and to value the partnership it has provided us on our American journey. Its mission is to provide a model of training and horsemanship which optimizes this partnership for the benefit of both horse and rider. Its mission is to celebrate the American West where all these things came to pass.
As such, the Western Dressage Association® of Minnesota is about more then receiving blue ribbons or a high test scores. It is about education and enlightenment. It is learning and understanding the horses’ thoughts, emotions, and movement. It is about growth as a rider through training techniques, attaining feedback, measuring progress, and setting goals. It is also about the future and continuing to cement the horse, as not just a tool, but as a partner and friend in the magical pursuit of harmony and balance. The WDA of MN is dedicated to our mission and want you to join us.
