Lexington, Ky. – The Western Dressage Association of America (WDAA) is set to host the 2019 Western Dressage World Championship Show from October 2-6. The championship returns to the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie, Okla., bringing together top combinations from across the United States and Canada for competition and to share the love of Western dressage with their peers.
The 2019 slate of judges includes Joanne Coy (Otsego, Mich.), Melissa Creswick (Clovis, Calif.), Janet “Dolly” Hannon (Arvada, Colo.), Susan Lang (Wichita, Kan.), and Brian MacMahon (Wellborn, Fla.).
The World Championship Show features a full day of rail classes, and individual tests will be held across four arenas for all levels of Western dressage. Additional divisions are offered for junior exhibitors, amateurs, open riders, and gaited horses. Additionally, the World Championship Show is the only triple-point show in existence for the WDAA Horse Lifetime Points and Awards Program.
Several classes are dedicated to the Heroes on Horses division, providing opportunities for physically challenged riders to show their horses. A therapeutic riding exhibition is also on the agenda for Friday and Saturday. Admission is free and spectators are encouraged to attend.
The focus of the show will not only be on top competition but on a shared celebration of the discipline. WDAA is offering several special events throughout the weekend for spectators and exhibitors alike, including an exhibitors meeting, a costume freestyle night, awards ceremony, and silent auction.
