After seeing her presentations and clinics about improving performance and athleticism for equine athletes, the Western Dressage Association® of America in 2011 invited Jec Aristotle Ballou to serve on its national educational committee. Since then, she has advised several national initiatives for the Western Dressage Association and written extensively about the development of and training for this new sport. She has taught sold-out Western Dressage training clinics on both coasts, and introduced riders of all levels to a discipline that promotes the horse’s honor and well-being above all else.
For the past two years, Jec has written a popular blog for the WDAA that provides a free weekly Western Dressage training exercises as well as many other informative articles about developing your horse into a better partner.
