The WDAA state affiliate program helps bring opportunities for educational events, clinics and shows to interested equestrians within a geographical area. Each state is supported by the WDAA with materials, promotion and a 501(c)(3) group exemption; but has the freedom to customize programs and work in partnership with other local equine associations and businesses who share a belief in the mission of the WDAA. Affiliates are organizing and forming in states across the nation. If you are interested in taking part in activities in your area, the WDAA encourages you to contact them at [email protected].
