Gaited Dressage to take Center Stage at International Grand Championships



Recognizing the ever-growing popularity of Gaited Dressage and the needs of exhibitors from across the country, this year's International Grand Championships will feature a full array of Gaited Dressage and Gaited Western Dressage classes, all of which will be adjudicated by a USDF "L" graduate judge. These classes, which are listed in their entirety below, will be held starting at 12 Noon on Saturday, July 23rd, in the air-conditioned Tennessee Miller Coliseum.

First held in 1979, the International has been instrumental in the development of the Pleasure Horse Division of the Tennessee Walking Horse industry and the popularity it enjoys today. With a full eight-day schedule of classes ranging from rail work to in-hand to versatility, the International is recognized by exhibitors from throughout the nation as the leading championship show for the flat shod Tennessee Walking Horse.
