Friends of Sound Horses announces the launching of an all-new, annual Dressage for Gaited Horses program that recognizes, records and rewards accomplishments of the gaited horse in dressage competitions.
The reward program is open to all breeds of gaited horses that are at least 48 months of age. Scores from gaited horse dressage tests judged by licensed judges will be tracked. Recognized gaited horse tests include those published by FOSH, International Judges’ Association, Western Dressage Association of America, National Walking Horse Association, North America Western Dressage Association and Cowboy Dressage.
Awards will be for Two Gait tests, Introductory Level tests, Training Level tests and First Level tests in English, Western or Cowboy Dressage. The program is open to FOSH members and runs January through December. Complete rules will be published at www.foshgaitedsporthorse.com after Oct. 21.
FOSH is a national leader in the promotion of natural, sound gaited horses and actively fights against abuse and soring of Tennessee Walking Horses. To become a member of FOSH and help in its efforts to fight soring or for more information about FOSH, please visit www.fosh.info.
