Attention New Mexico equestrians! Always wanted to learn something about dressage? Now's your chance!
A Dressage Expo specifically designed for young riders or newcomers to dressage will be held April 14, 2012 at the Vista Sandia Equestrian Park in Albuquerque, NM!
The event will include mounted demonstrations, informative booths and tables to help you find out about potential instructors, tack, associations, and resources, and the opportunity to participate in introductory and training level tests for riders under 21 or adult novices who have never competed in any dressage show.
The expo will begin at 9:30, and there is no charge for admission. The suggested donation for adults is 2:00. The morning hours will feature demonstrations, including Western Dressage, Prix Caprilli, and Dressage Seat Equitation, as well as Training and First and Second Level Tests. In the afternoon, you can sign up for a Newsomers Dressage Ride of Choice, open to all breeds of horses, with young riders free and adults paying $10.
And when you work up an appetite, head over the the barbecue or Mexican Food wagons.
Vista Sandia Equestrian Park is located just off Paseo del Norte between Eubank and Tramway. See map below:
