With more than six decades combined experience the two offers an extremely valuable and broad perspective from many vantage points including those of competitor, trainer, instructor, coach and judge. Palm has earned her USEF Western Dressage Judge’s License. Palm and Pittion-Rossillon invite guests speakers with expertise in training and judging throughout the sessions.  A natural fit for Palm and Pittion-Rossillon is to lend their knowledge and experience to the Western Dressage Association of Florida. While Palm serves on the USEF Western Dressage Committee, and WDAA Professional Committee and Rules Committee, both she and Pittion-Rossillon serve as Advisory Board Members to WDAFL. The relationship goes full circle as those who have completed the Symposium can become Sanctioned Professionals by the Western Dressage Association of Florida. The professional listing gives access to referrals helping to expand business. The Symposium is comprised of theory sessions, discussion and live demonstrations which offer a clear and precise progression of humane and effective Western Dressage fundamentals based on classical training. The Symposium answers many questions asked about western dressage and rules for gaits, maneuvers, tack, attire and competition as furnished by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF). During demonstrations desirable and undesirable gaits, proper and improper balanced frame and tempo are observed along with correctly ridden arena figures, lateral movements and the art of riding with accuracy. Questions will be addressed during demonstrations to solidify the proper image of the western dressage horse and rider.
