Welcome to the Western Dressage Association® of Colorado

The mission of the Western Dressage Association® of Colorado is to build an equine community that combines the Western traditions of horse and rider with Classical Dressage. In doing this it will provide an educational and competitive environment which is accessible to all Colorado riders and horses. Our mission will be guided by that of the Western Dressage Association® of America which states:

We honor the horse.
We value the partnership between horse and rider.
We celebrate the legacy of the American West.

 “It’s about the journey.”

-Larry Mahan, American cowboy

2017 WDAA Tests have Arrived!

Five Levels and Freestyle tests are now available for downloading and practice. WDAA has published watermarked training tests for your home and barn use and has also made available the “official” tests to be used by shows holding WDAA classes.

The official show tests will require a show organizer to answer a few questions about their upcoming show, which will help WDAA gauge the growth of Western Dressage and help further publicize upcoming events.

The new 2017 tests can be accessed here
