Im­merse your­self in the beauty and pre­ci­sion of West­ern dres­sage when you at­tend the West­ern Dres­sage As­so­ci­a­tion of Amer­ica World Cham­pi­onship Show at the his­toric Lazy E Arena in cen­tral Ok­la­homa. “We don’t re­quire qual­i­fi­ca­tion for our event, so we have com­peti­tors of all lev­els,” notes Dini Swan­son, WDAA ex­ec­u­tive sec­re­tary. “Peo­ple come for the fun at­mos­phere and ca­ma­raderie, but the first pri­or­ity is al­ways the horse.”

The grow­ing event, which hosts more than 200 horses dur­ing the show, of­fers 74 classes.

“The thing that hooked me when I at­tended my first West­ern dres­sage event was that ev­ery­one has a great time,” Swan­son shares. “That fun at­mos­phere is also found at our world show.”

That el­e­ment of fun is aug­mented with cel­e­bra­tions each night of the show, both on the grounds and in a new event that en­cour­ages show-go­ers to visit lo­cal restau­rants.

If you can’t at­tend the event in per­son, you can watch the show on­line from the com­fort of your home—and make plans to be there in per­son next year!
