Cowboy Dressage Clinic with
Wyatt Paxton of Wy-Not Cowboy Dressage!
Wyatt is one of the five Cowboy Dressage World Partners, and started with Cowboy Dressage when Eitan asked for assistance setting up the court for shows. From the beginning, he was hooked by the “soft feel”, and “everything right for the horse” mentality that resonated with his morals. He has met many wonderful people interested doing what is right for the horse. Wyatt continues to be central to Cowboy Dressage, attending as many Expos and Gatherings as possible, and making himself indispensable setting up courts, booths, managing shows.
