GREAT LOCATION AND FACILITY

We are so excited to be returning to the Bar K Bar Arena in Lyons, Kansas! The facility is truly world class with the extra large indoor arena, indoor and outdoor covered stalling, and R.V. Park. This is the perfect place located in the central US!

ALL TESTS OFFERED FOR YOUTH, AMATEUR, AND

OPEN

All partnership and regular court tests will exhibit each day, beginning with partnership on the ground, followed by partnership under saddle, followed by Walk Jog 1 and progress. All challenge court tests will exhibit each day also, beginning with challenge Walk Jog 1 and progress.

JUDGE'S MEETINGS

Exhibitors (and guests) meet with the judges each morning as scheduled and the commencement of tests to hear their general advice and feedback and to ask questions. The meetings also include announcements from show management and, on Sunday, include the presentation of certain awards. Don't miss them. If you have an early ride, bring your horse along!

HIGH POINT BUCKLES

We know prizes are just a bonus to the more important benefits of Cowboy Dressage and what we celebrate at our gatherings, but they sure are pretty! The buckle pictured is a previous year’s design from the same manufacturer. Thank you to Molly’s Custom Silver for the beautiful design, craftsmanship! AWARD RULES & QUALIFICATIONS.

SOFT FEEL CHARM

The Kansas Cowboy Dessage coveted “soft feel” award. Each rider who receives an 8.0 or higher on their soft feel collective score will be awarded the most coveted “soft feel” bridle charm. It’s just a simple little charm that means the world to your horse!  

VOLUNTEERS

We are a volunteer-run event and welcome exhibitors and non-exhibitors to help the event run smoothly. If you are new to Cowboy Dressage it's a great way to meet people and begin to see what we're all about. Email Leslie Borden, bordenle@yahoo.com, regarding volunteer opportunities.

OTHER IMPORTANT SHOW REMINDERS:

CALLERS. Arrange for a caller! KCDA does not provide callers. If we are told that someone is interested in calling, we will pass that information along to you. Ultimately caller arrangements are your responsibility! $5/test is a standard callers' fee. Callers stand at E and may use KCDA's call sheets. COGGINS REQUIRED. A Coggins result that is dated within a year of the show dates is required. BEDDING. Order bedding on your entry form or buy shavings on site! The Event Center does not allow outside bedding. FOUR RIDE LIMIT. A horse may not be ridden in more than four tests each day. The four ride limit does apply to freestyle entries. BUDDY HORSES. You may have up to two "buddy horses" join you in the competition arena during your test. They can stand anywhere in the arena outside of the court that does not inhibit the judge's view, and may be led or ridden.
