Instructors/Trainers List: We do not certify, recommend or endorse trainers.  We have asked trainers to fill out a standard questionnaire, and will then publish this information “free of charge” for active WDAFL members.  Western Dressage Professionals interested in submitting a questionnaire, please print it here: Instructor/Trainers Questionnaire.  If you are not a WDAFL/WDAA member and would like to be listed indicate that in your email with your questionnaire and we will send you a PayPal invoice. An asterick (*) next to a name denotes sanctioned status.

WDAFL Sanctioned Instructor Program: Upon completion of this program we feel that these professionals have the background to teach Western Dressage.  This is not an endorsement, rather a way to move forward in Florida.  Many instructors/trainers listed on our website have extensive experience, as well as those not listed, and serve Western Dressage very well.  Please perform interview, ask your friends, observe and make a choice that best suits your needs and goals.

WDAFL is committed to supporting, encouraging and providing educational opportunities for all the professionals teaching and training Western Dressage.
