The William Woods University Spring Recognized Dressage Show will be held April 11-12 in the UPHA indoor arena on campus, beginning at 8 a.m.

Both WWU and non-collegiate riders can compete in the show, which is free and open for public viewing. Ida Anderson Norris of Stuart, Florida, will judge the competition.

The Spring Dressage Show is a USEF/USDF-licensed show. Because the show is recognized, riders can use this show to get scores for medals, regional qualifications and year-end awards.

“I always look forward to Spring Show. It is exciting to have a recognized show right here on campus,” said Stephanie Freeland, sophomore from Zionsville, Indiana, and Dressage Club president.

“I enjoy the behind-the-scenes work that the students get to see that we wouldn’t normally think about when going to a show held at another facility. I am also looking forward to hopefully get scores to go to my USDF Bronze and Silver Medals.”

Introductory, training, 1st-4th level, FEI level and opportunity test classes will be offered. Opportunity classes are available for those who are not USEF or USDF members.
