INDA Year-End Wrap-Up of 1998
1998 was a busy year for the Inland Northwest Dressage Association. The highlight was a successful USDF (U. S. Dressage Federation) AHSA (American Horse Show Association) recognized 2-day show at the end of June. Competitors came from throughout Washington, Idaho, Oregon, and Montana. Two successful schooling shows were held; one at Sally Shepard's Northwest Trails barn in Deer Park and the other at Rivermere Stables in Spokane. Schooling shows are a relatively inexpensive way to enjoy the sport and art of dressage; they are intended to be a fun, positive learning experience for riders and their horses. Show clothes are not required, usually just suitable riding attire, a safety helmet, and riding boots. Western saddles may be used in some of the lower level classes. Interested? Watch for the 1999 INDA events calendar in coming issues.
