Famed horseman and visionary of Cowboy Dressage, Eitan Beth-Halachmy announces that Cowboy Dressage World has moved its 2016 Gathering and Finals Horse Show dates to Sept 8-11. Eitan feels this is a good move that will allow for better travel conditions, longer day light and warmer weather. It also allows for the continued growth of this event.
In 2015, this Gathering and Finals was truly an international event. Riders and guests joined Cowboy Dressage World from Australia, Germany, Canada, Poland and Hungary. There were a record setting 980 rides over 4 days and 4 arenas.
In 2015, Cowboy Dressage World introduced the Top Hand Division. Each rider is required to ride a preliminary test that is known to them ahead of time. The top 5 must then ride an unknown test and then switch horses and ride the same test. Both the preliminary and Top 5 are judged by 3 judges. In 2016 the Amateur Rider will have their own Top Hand Competition, but will not be required to switch horses. Same tests for both open and amateur will apply.
The 2016 Gathering and Finals will open with a day of education and clinics and then on to the competitions. This annual event will continue to be held at Murieta Equestrian Center, Rancho Murieta, CA.
