Dressage Winnipeg is the organization dealing with the sport of Dressage in Winnipeg and surrounding areas.Each year, Dressage Winnipeg holds at least three shows, and often hosts the Manitoba Provincial Championships.
Our membership is strong and increasing in the past years. Our dedicated volunteers make shows and activities possible and their efforts are always appreciated. Dressage Winnipeg also sponsors certain training activities for its members. Our newsletter called "Passage" is regularly distributed to members.
What is Dressage? Dressage, from the French word for "training", is often described as the art of dancing on horseback or ballet on horseback and is often compared to the freestyle of figure skating. The art of dressage is a harmonious blend of power, beauty and precision. The sport of Dressage is designed to improve a horse's balance, suppleness and flexibility, as well as improve the communication between horse and rider.
Since our Show Manager is away on holidays and can't get to working on the schedule anyway, we've decided to extend the entry deadline by a few days. New deadline for entries to the Midsummer Madness competition on Aug 6th and 7th is now midnight Monday July 25th. As an added bonus, this change might help some of our GIAG participants decide whether to enter the show or which tests to ride. GIAG is this weekend at the park and spectators are welcome! Clinician/judge is Elaine Potter. Sponsored in part by Westwind Stables. Lots of horse fun in the next few weeks!
