Western dressage enthusiasts were recently recognized for top scores in a variety of “dressage outside the box” tests as part of the May Trailblazers Virtual Show, sponsored by North American Western Dressage (NAWD). The show took place May 6–15, and participants videotaped nearly 90 tests that showcased the partnership created through Western dressage in groundwork tests, trail courses, and Western and traditional dressage.

Winners through sixth place in each division receive custom artisan ribbons featuring artwork by Michelle Guillot. Upcoming NAWD virtual shows are:

  • June 10–12 (Focus: Ranch Horse Western Dressage)
  • July 2–10 (Focus: Midsummer Celebration)
  • August 12–14 (Focus: Ranch Horse Western Dressage)
  • September 3–11 (Focus: Harvest Classic)
  • October 1–9 (Focus: Fall Festival)
  • October 14–16 (Focus: Ranch Horse Western Dressage Championship & Jackpot)
