Cowboy Dressage World Launches a New Membership Offer Beyond the Handshake

Inside Cowboy Dressage Credits: Rick Lamb

Cowboy Dressage New Remuda Membership is now up and ready for signups.

Join now and benefit from membership perks.

Jenni Grimmett DVM, Cowboy Dressage Educator said, “Cowboy Dressage is changing the horse world one handshake at a time. The handshake membership that is the cornerstone of the Cowboy Dressage community is unique as it is not only a membership in a community but a contract, a code of the west and a promise. With the handshake, Cowboy Dressage World enters into an old-fashioned agreement with members to provide education, materials, support and inspiration to its members. It promises to embrace the old “code of the west” where your word is your bond and your stock in trade. That handshake membership will always be a part of Cowboy Dressage. It is free for anybody who wants to come aboard and support this revolution in horsemanship.”

It is in part with the handshake that Cowboy Dressage now brings you the new “Remuda” membership. The educational side of Cowboy Dressage continues to grow and prosper but as this is the “gift” side of Cowboy Dressage it can only grow so much without the support of its growing membership. The other aspect of Cowboy Dressage are the Gatherings which are growing by leaps and bounds. While Cowboy Dressage’s main focus is not competition, the Gatherings drive the participation in educational events and give the public an opportunity to see us put our words into action.

The new Remuda membership is designed for members that are taking advantage of the gatherings across the country and for those that are wishing gatherings would come their way.

Riders will always be able to be a part of Cowboy Dressage without spending a dime. Your handshake is your bond and you have ready access to tests, diagrams, court outlines, educational materials, blogs from partners and professionals, and more. If you are ready to take your membership and support one step further, this is what you are getting with your Remuda membership.

The Remuda membership is designed to also be a year-end high point award for each of the divisions. For those participating in recognized Cowboy Dressage Gatherings (schooling shows and playdays do not fall under this new program) you choose which division you would like to gather points in for the year. If you are riding in multiple divisions you can purchase the rights for point tracking in additional divisions for $30. This point record becomes a useful tool for tracking the performance of not only the rider but a horse as well, helping to build the resume of any horse that is participating in the program.

Through this program you will be eligible for milestone achievement awards. You and your horse will have the opportunity to work towards these milestones and will earn a token representing your achievement. These awards are a great way to take the focus off of the competition with fellow riders and back onto the achievements of you and your horse.

The Remuda membership is an annual membership which runs from Jan 1 to Jan 1 each year. You are also able to purchase a lifetime membership if you so desire. You are encouraged to sign up early in the year to get the most benefit of your membership. You will receive with your membership a membership number which is then entered onto your Gathering entry forms for each show you attend.

Non-remuda members will pay an additional fee of $25 on their entry forms at all recognized shows. It is important to note that money is going directly to Cowboy Dressage World and not to the local organization putting on the gathering.  Professionals who join the professions association are automatically awarded a Remuda Membership.
