Soft Feel is the guiding principle of Cowboy Dressage. It is a wordless, intimate communication within the partnership between horse and rider. Soft Feel is not only sending messages but having the sensitivity and awareness to feel the messages the horse sends back. Soft Feel is the rider’s ability to support and help the horse throughout the ride, even if the horse is nervous or spooky. Soft Feel comes from the rider and is felt by the rider from the horse, no matter what is going on with the horse. The rider supports the horse to develop trust and confidence in any situation.

CDW is very excited to announce that there will be new additional Partnership on the Ground tests for 2020. These tests are fun and progress in degrees of difficulty.

Cowboy Dressage World Summer Show shines in cool new location!
Our Summer Show, June 20-21, has been moved to the cool location of Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds in Watsonville, California. This new location is also a vacation destination for the whole family. Exhibitors can escape the hot summer temps and enjoy cooler coastal weather. The fairgrounds host 30 equine shows a year so they know what they’re doing, and the bonus is that camping is available. Premiums and entries for the show can be found by Clicking on the Event Page Here. We will also post a Show banner on the homepage when the Premiums are up, so check back often!
We are planning free clinics, a youth clinic, bar b q, and more fun activities . . .
