Welcome to the Wisconsin Dressage & Combined Training Association
WDCTA Youth Dressage Clinic
Saturday, July 26
This clinic offers riders, age 21 and under, the opportunity to have a lesson with clinician Katie Foster, USDF Bronze and Silver medalist who competed on the Region 2 Junior Rider team and the Young Rider team. And, as an option, riders can use the last portion of their 45-minute lesson to ride a dressage test and get scores and comments from "L" graduate Tracey Dikkers.
