Winning Ways with Western Dressage Promotes Showing and Growing

The long-time team of Lynn Palm and Marie-Frances Davis are joining forces to promote the growth of Western Dressage among American Quarter Horse enthusiasts by providing a welcoming environment through competition and education for newcomers as well as current participants.

With the expertise of Lynn Palm as an AQHA Judge, USEF Western Dressage R Judge, World Champion Competitor and international clinician and Marie-Frances Davis, AQHA Show Manager, WDAA World Champion and Horse of the Year Champion, the two bring a unique set of skills to the Winning Ways Showing and Growing experience.
