June 20, 2013 – The Western Dressage Association of America (WDAA) and Dressage Illustrated have partnered to release Rider and Judge Books for all 16 WDAA Western Dressage tests. The WDAA is excited for these offerings as Dressage Illustrated books give equestrians the ability to both visualize a test and ride it correctly.
Dressage Illustrated books offer diagrams of each WDAA written test. These diagrams have proven to be a valuable educational tool for riders as well as a respected reference for judges. The books also include definitions of the gaits and movements to help the rider’s understanding and the judge’s evaluations. All coefficient movements (with double point values) are shaded for easy identification. Plus the books are conveniently sized and designed to withstand consistent use.
Dressage Illustrated books are offered in both Rider and Judges Editions. For Riders, an independent book is available for each level of WDAA Western Dressage tests and include definitions to assist in understanding the discipline, gaits and elements; helping to capitalize on learning and understanding expectations. The Judges book includes all levels, any updates and all quick reference diagrams to maximize usability for judges.
To order books online please visit the available link via the WDAA website www.westerndressageassociation.org or Dressage Illustrated at www.dressageillustrated.com. These Western Dressage books may also be purchased by phone, fax, email or U.S. mail.
Since 1990, Dressage Illustrated has been a United States standard for learning new dressage tests. Riders find the graphical illustrations of the written tests a tremendous aid in visualizing the test and riding it correctly. Dressage Illustrated partners with FEI, USEF, USDF, USEA and the WDAA to offer supporting books for equestrians.
