Registration is Open for Winning Ways with Western Dressage Summer 2024 Events

Winning Ways with Western Dressage combines the expertise of Lynn Palm as an AQHA Judge, USEF Western Dressage R Judge, World Champion Competitor and international clinician, and Marie-Frances Davis, AQHA Show Manager, WDAA World Champion and Horse of the Year Champion. The two bring a unique set of skills to the Winning Ways Showing and Growing experience.

The first of its kind competitive and educational weekend begins with the Show, a Saturday AQHA Western Dressage Special Event with AQHA and WDAA Recognition judged by Palm. Sunday is an opportunity to Grow Your Scores with a Test Review, learning to ride with accuracy and Question and Answer Session. Monday and Tuesday is the Grow Your Skills Clinic with small groups of riders and their horses working with Palm to advance their training under saddle.

Registration is now open for the first summer 2024 events in Nebraska and Maryland. June 22-25 is in Fremont, NE, near Omaha, the home of The Dressage Foundation. With The Foundation celebrating 35 years, proceeds from auction items will be donated to the Lynn Palm Western Dressage Fund. Oak Spring Equestrian in Woodbine, MD, will be home to Winning Ways July 13-16. A new location for 2024, the facility hosts Working Equitation events so exploring similarities to this discipline will be a unique opportunity.

The AQHA/WDAA shows and clinics are open to all breeds of horses and levels of riders.  Wonderful prizes have been sponsored by fantastic companies who support Winning Ways. For individual classes as well as High Scores for Youth, Amateur and Open, they range from Funky Unicorn Horse Treats, Treats with a Purpose and Hodges Badge Company medals compliments of Palm Equestrian Academy to SmartPak gift certificates and coupons for Premium Purina Feeds. The Grow Your Test Scores Test Review is open to 8 riders. The Grow Your Skills Clinic can hold a maximum of 10 riders.
