Cowboy Dressage is a fast growing discipline that combines the elegance of classical dressage and the age-old fashion of Western riding and lifestyle. Their philosophy is to acknowledge “try” of both horse and rider, encouraging the use of soft feel and understanding. Cowboy Dressage promotes a new way to be with your horse, with kindness as your guide. It furthers a fun atmosphere of belonging to a group of like-minded horsemen, and of taking you and your horse to greater accomplishments. In fact, Cowboy Dressage World offers a free way to become part of the Cowboy Dressage family—a simple (virtual) handshake. The organization invites people to harken back to when a person’s word meant something. The Cowboy Dressage Handshake is their Code of the West. By agreeing to the Handshake principles of try, kindness, trust and being the very best you can be, each member becomes part of the Cowboy Dressage World. (Pledge for free at
