The Western Dressage Association of America is planning to add a bit of color and a whole lot of fun to our Fifth Annual meeting and the Second WDAA Western Dressage World Championship Horse Show being held Oct. 30-Nov. 2, 2014, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We want this meeting and show to be a special event for those at home as well as those able to join us. So for the first time we will be offering opportunities to interact with the Western Dressage community in a virtual fashion.
The fun begins immediately with the WDAA encouraging members to “Show us the Color of Your Journey.” Just snap a “selfie” in your favorite WDAA limited edition World Show tee shirt or sweatshirt, available in the WDAA General Store, and post it to the WDAA Facebook page. You can even add a message for a favorite competitor or challenge other friends to add their cutest, silliest, goofiest or most creative photos to share the fun. Don’t forget to add the hashtag #WDAAWorldShowColors so we can get the whole equine community following along.
Then spend our big weekend enjoying fun facts, interviews and the live stream of our WDAA World Championship Horse Show. With more than 350 entries participating across all test and freestyle levels of Western Dressage, this event promises to be one to remember. The live stream will show all four arenas and can be accessed via our partners on the Color Breed Congress website.
Whether or not you plan to be in Tulsa, be sure to join us for the Saddle Up Party to celebrate Western Dressage. This party begins immediately following the World Show with our Awards Celebration and features a chance to win some exciting door prizes including limited edition World Show items, a beautiful set of romal reins and a custom Harmony Western Dressage Saddle fender specially made and donated by Western Dressage Riding Gear.
Your admission ticket to the party gives you an entry into the prize drawings, but there is no limit on the number of tickets that can be purchased by each person. Buy them online at WDAA World Show for $10 per ticket or $50 for six tickets. The best part is that you need not be present in Tulsa to win! Just follow the live stream and join in the fun.
The WDAA salutes our great sponsors the American Morgan Horse Association for sponsoring the Saddle Up Party and Western Dressage Riding Gear for their saddle donation! Thanks to them we are making this event even more fun.
Saddle up and join us virtually or in Tulsa to learn, appreciate, celebrate and enjoy this spectacular weekend devoted to honoring the horse and the development of the partnership between horse and rider. As with all things Western Dressage, it promises to be an amazing Journey.
