Welcome to the Western Dressage Association® of Colorado

The mission of the Western Dressage Association® of Colorado is to build an equine community that combines the Western traditions of horse and rider with Classical Dressage. In doing this it will provide an educational and competitive environment which is accessible to all Colorado riders and horses. Our mission will be guided by that of the Western Dressage Association® of America which states:

We honor the horse.
We value the partnership between horse and rider.
We celebrate the legacy of the American West.

 ”It’s about the journey.”

-Larry Mahan, American cowboy

 There has been a new case of Vesicular Stomatitis in Boulder.  As the mission of the WDACO is to Honor the Horse, we believe it is in the best interest of all to cancel our clinics that were scheduled for this Saturday, July 26th.  We are currently working with the fairgrounds to determine if the clinics will be rescheduled.  To all riding participants, our clinic coordinator will be personally contacting you by phone.
