Schooling Shows and Gatherings in the Southwest

What is a Cowboy Dressage Schooling show or Gathering and how does it work??

Schooling shows and Gatherings are a great way to test your skills and receive feedback from a judge on your ride.  These are usually one or two day fun filled events.  

Schooling shows and Gatherings are judged by recommended Cowboy Dressage judges.  Tests emphasize kindness, soft feel, and partnership.   All tests, judges score sheets can be viewed and downloaded from https://cowboydressageworld.com/resources/tests/

A competitor in Cowboy Dressage schooling show or Gathering will choose which tests they want to ride (class list).  A total of 4 ridden tests and 4 in hand tests are allowed per horse per day.   Any test can be ridden more than once.  

Show management will usually send out ride times ahead of the event.  These are the time at which the rider will perform the test.
