Fort Worth Dressage Club News

The Fort Worth Dressage Club (FWDC) held its annual Edu-

cation Day in July and was a wonderful learning experience for all who attended. Brett and Karen Shayler of Superior Equine Mas- sage Therapy gave a demonstration and Dyanna Lawson did a ses- sion on scribing. Potluck and good friends and equine education all combined to make a fun and informative day. FWDC also hosted the Region 9 Summer Meeting in August.

Much thanks to members Brett and Karen Shayler for arranging for us to have our meeting in the Cowgirl Museum! USDF Region 9 consists of 5 states – Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. This meeting discussed what is going on in our Region and gives us a chance for all the club members in those states to get together and see what each club is doing for its members. Another fun event was our annual pool party – games, swimming, and food – always a

great way to visit and cool off in August in Texas. Our club is devoted to providing dressage and dressage activities for its members. FWDC‘s

monthly meetings are at Szechuan Chinese Restaurant off Bryant Irving on the 4th Monday of every month at 6:30 PM. Everyone is welcome. Please check out our website at to see our latest happen-

ings and activities. Who knows, you may find yourself in some of the pictures. If you don’t have time to go online, stay in touch with FWDC’s monthly newsletters and group e-mails to be informed of club activities and other dressage events in the community. Let me know if you would like a dressage event added to our calendar. Join FWDC and learn more about the wonderful sport of dressage. We welcome all levels of riders on all breeds of horses! w

Daisy Farish (Great White) was nearly perfect in the Individual

Championship. The 17-year-old representing the combined team of Zones 4 and 5, and her 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding finished on a score of four after three rounds of jumping. Cohen earned a second medal with an individual silver (5.14), while Zone 1’s McKayla Lang- meier (Durosa W) was the individual bronze medalist (6.28). The combined Dressage Young Riders Team of Quebec and Al-

berta was the only group consisting of just three riders, meaning the trio would not have the luxury of having a drop score. But that did noth- ing to stop them, as Rakeya Moussa (Davidoff v.h. Trichelhof), Beat- rice Boucher (Delfiano), and Camille Carier Bergeron (Baldacci) claimed the gold medal for Canada with a team total of 210.145. Re- gion 4/7 finished with the silver medal and Region 1 earned bronze. Zone 2 was kept off the podium despite team member Callie Jones (Don

Philippo) delivering the day’s highest score, 71.823. But the 20-year-old only had to wait a day to get her podium moment. She won the Individual Championship with a score of 72.20%. Boucher, earning her second medal, was the silver medalist, and Kayla Kadlubek (Perfect Step) of Region 1 was bronze. Anna Weniger (Don Derrick) moved up the podium to top the

Daisy Farish & Great White

Freestyle Championship after contributing to a team bronze medal for Re- gion 1. Her score of 74.225% catapulted her to the top of the leaderboard, just ahead of Boucher (72.800%) and Jones (72.775%). “I have been fortunate enough to ride on some young rider teams the last

few years, but winning an individual medal is way more than I ever imag- ined,” Weniger said. Full results w
