Over 900 rides and a fabulous time!

Thank You Competitors!  We wouldn't have a show without all of you!

The DAL show management would like to extend our deepest appreciation to our sponsors and volunteers who made the show such a success! The showgrounds were busy throughout the 3 days with beautiful horses, smiling/laughing competitors, and everyone enjoying the DAL hospitality tent. A fabulous show! Again, thank you to all who made it possible!

Thank you to Rebecca Lord "Soul Passion Farm" for your generous sponsorship,

Peta Jean Wyllie for sponsoring the "Maestro Cup",

Cynthia Montague"BioStar" for the lovely competitor baseball caps, and

Thank you to all the DAL sponsors! Check out the DAL Sponsorship webpage to view and visit

Thank you to all the volunteers who ignored the heat to offer a helping hand to all competitors and assisted in managing the showgrounds! 

 We couldn't have done it without each of you.

Discover Your Potential by Building a Solid Foundation Symposium

The symposium was exceptional for riders, auditors, and volunteers.  VADA extends its deepest gratitude to George Williams and Bill Warren for creating a wonderful experience for all. The Virginia Dressage Association would like to thank our cohost, Stave Mill Farm, and Gardy Bloomers, and Nick Duke Sr. for helping to make this symposium truly possible. We also would like to recognize the generous grants provided by the Dressage Foundation (TDF) and the United Dressage Association (USDF).

Visit the symposium webpage to meet the riders, view individual session pictures/videos,  unmounted activities videos, and Q&A with the clinicians.  The Q&A YouTube video is in two locations - "Meet the Clinicians" and "Symposium Auditors."
