Love what our LVDA Youth are up to!

Riley Schreiber, Penn State Western Equestrian Team and Paige Dolon, Kutztown Western Equestrian Team met up at Delaware Valley University where they both competed at IHSA Western Pleasure class, level 12. Riley placed first and second in the AM/PM shows, while Paige was first in both AM and PM.

Best wishes for a great season for all of LVDA's IHSA riders!

The LVDA Gives Back program began in 2021 as a way for the LVDA community to give back to larger at risk communities in the Lehigh Valley. Over the past several years, we have raised over $6,000 with money going to a wide variety of both human and animal welfare organizations. We are proud to continue to support this program, as LVDA Gives Back to the Lehigh Valley.

LVDA provides educational programing and support for the local dressage community through our Dressage Schooling Show Series and Year-End Awards. 

You can support these activities with clinic sponsorships, training grants, or sponsoring a Year-End Award.
