Dressage Fest Re-Cap

Each year, Glass-Ed proudly hosts its annual Dressage Fest. The most unique feature of this dressage schooling show is the optional written quiz. Free to all competitors, the quiz is available online in the weeks leading up to the show, and scores earned are converted into extra credit points toward the show High Point Champion and Reserve Champion awards for each level and division. One of Glass-Ed’s primary goals is to provide educational opportunities, and these quizzes offer an excellent opportunity for members to review rules and dressage show etiquette…

Spring 2016 Newsletter

Okay, so maybe we’re still a couple of days away, but there’s nothing quite like the splashing and sucking sounds of mud to hint that warmer days are ahead! Even if your sleek show horse still resembles a yak, and even if your dressage arena would currently make a better swimming pool, you’ve probably started planning your summer rides, written down a few show and clinic dates, and maybe even checked to see if you and horse still remember how to do this riding thing…

Winter 2016 Newsletter

We’re getting to that time of year when spring seems like it might actually show up after all. Days are getting longer, we’re a mere four weeks away from changing the clocks, and horses are starting to shed. And it wouldn’t be spring if we didn’t start thinking about clinics and show season!

Western Dressage Apprentice Judging Program

WOW. I think that’s the word that best summarizes the Western Dressage Group Apprentice Judging Program that took place in November 6-8, 2015 at the Western Dressage World Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am truly embracing Western Dressage, I understand why it’s taking off like crazy, and after seeing the competition at the World Show, I’m even more impressed…

August/September 2015 Newsletter

The Little GMO That Could

The Little GMO that Could... And Did! by Joanne Coy Just like the little engine that could, our GMO has chugged up some major hills these past few years to accomplish some pretty big tasks. In the fall of 2012, Glass-Ed hosted Part 1 of the USDF Learner Judging...
