A wildcard dressage show was put on by the Prairie Arabian Working Western and Sport Horse Association (PAWWSHA) on Sept. 24 at the Hungry Horse Ranch, which is located west of Wawota and owned by Ken and Roxanne Appell.
Roxanne Appell, who is an avid horsewoman, said the PAWWSHA was founded in 2017 by a handful of horse enthusiasts to increase the sport of riding in several disciplines, with the focus being dressage.
Two shows were planned for this year in Melville and Brandon, but due to low entries they had to be cancelled, so the wildcard shows came into place.
Dressage has 11 levels, beginning at the entry level and ending with the grand prix special.
Scoring is done out of 110. Each horse and rider will be judged on ease of handling, the horse and rider’s movement and their ease of transition from one gait to the other.Click here to see more...
