William Woods University will host its spring dressage show this weekend. The show is licensed by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and United States Dressage Federation (USDF).

The show will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 19 and 20 in the Rowland Applied Riding Arena and UPHA Arena. Each day will be treated as a different show, meaning contestants sign up for each day’s events individually and their scores will not be combined.

The show is open to both students and outsiders, and with the large number of horses arriving, nearly 30 extra stalls have been erected for the show. A total of 58 classes under USDF Level 2 Competition will be judged by Pamela Wooding and Debby Savage.
