Snowbird Dressage: March 3, 2018 at the Kentucky Horse Park Covered Arena

Event History: Started in 1987, Snowbird Dressage has primarily taken place at the Kentucky Horse Park, though it was held at Masterson Station Park for a few years. It was moved to the Horse Park permanently to utilize the warm up area and to use the covered arena.

Offering dressage, eventing and western dressage tests, Snowbird Dressage is designed to offer a no-pressure way to practice new tests or levels in a competitive atmosphere. Using MSEDA and USEF judges, a team competition is offered, as well as a series championship. Snowbird has been MSEDA Dressage Show of the Year multiple years and is a winter dressage destination for many in the Bluegrass.

Date and Time: The last date is March 3, 2018. The show starts at approximately 8:00 am and runs until around 5:00 pm, depending on how many rides are scheduled.

Volunteer Opportunities: 
Prior to every Snowbird show:
- setting up rings
- stuffing of packets
- picking up prizes
- putting up stall cards
- filling out dressage tests

During the show:
- ring stewards
- runners
- scorers
