SWVADA Schooling Shows and Clinics
SWVADA 2020 Clinics
The SWVADA/BREA schooling show is now set for August 23. Entries close August 16. See entry forms and Covid-19 Guidelines below.
SWVADA is sponsoring a Fix-a-Test on August 15 at Mane Gait Farm. See entry form information below. The VADA Chapter Challenge Show scheduled for this date has been canceled for 2020.
SWVADA hopes to reschedule other 2020 shows and clinics as the Covid-19 pandemic allows.
We had a great turnout for our two Cavaletti Clinics at Green Hill Park last year, and hope to hold another clinic some time later this year. Please click here for information on cavaletti training.
The VADA symposium with George Williams and Bill Warren on June 27 and 28 has been postponed until late June of 2021.
We are working on scheduling more great local clinics too, so check back here for more information as plans develop.

2020 Volunteers Needed
WE NEED YOU - Current events have kept us all away from the show ring this spring, but we hope to be back on schedule with appropriate safety measures in place later this year.
To run a smooth and efficient show, we need lots of volunteers; gate stewards, score sheet runners, scribe, scorers, announcer and lots of hands for set up the day before and take down at the end of the show. It is helpful to have a pickup truck for setup and take down, if someone can commit their time and vehicle. We will schedule around ride times if you are showing. Job preference will be given to early responders. No experience needed, we provide on the job training!
Each hour of volunteer work will earn a chance for an end of the year drawing for a huge tack supply gift card. The more you volunteer, the more chances to win the gift card! In addition, SWVADA provides lunch for all volunteers.
Contact Evie Washburn to reserve your favorite volunteer position for 2020.
Fun for Everyone!
If you are a non-rider just looking to spend time in the community, we would love to have you volunteer!
Come out and join in on the fun in 2020!
