This relatively new sport is quickly gaining popularity and can be done by any western pair with a good foundation.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys setting a goal and tackling each step to achieve it, chances are good you’ll fi nd a western dressage show quite satisfying.

Shows are affordable, low-key, and do not require special equipment or attire.
