Michelle and Cowboy Dressage

Michelle has been involved with Cowboy Dressage since 2012 when, while writing an article for the USEF Western Dressage Blog, she first interviewed Eitan Beth-Halachmy at the International Centered Riding Symposium. Fascinated and intrigued, Michelle introduced Cowboy Dressage to the Inland Northwest in subsequent articles published in Horse Previews Magazine. Michelle is a recognized Cowboy Dressage Professional holding "Ambassador" status and teaches Cowboy Dressage at Relational Riding Academy. The first Inland Northwest Cowboy Dressage Gathering was held in Colville Washington in 2014 with Slide Creek Arena. Annual shows were held in 2015 and 16 with the 2017 show to be held at RRA. She coaches the HEART Cowboy Dressage Drill Team and the team traveled to attend Cowboy Dressage World Finals in Sacramento CA to perform at opening ceremonies in 2015 and 2016. In 2015, Michelle was gifted a silver Appreciation Buckle by the Cowboy Dressage Partners for her role in promoting and supporting the discipline. Riders in the RRA Cowboy Dressage Program have earned multiple CD World Finals awards including World Champion WJL Youth, Rose R. For information about participating or to learn more about Cowboy Dressage in the Spokane area, contact Michelle.
