Date: Summer 2016
Due to scheduling conflicts and the need for more volunteers, we must postpone DWC until Summer of 2016. We will post the date on our website www.dressageinthewinecountry.org as soon as we have the date confirmed. Please contact us if you are interested in helping make DWC 2016 an event to remember! We need sponsors, vendors and volunteers to help produce the event and volunteers to work the day of the event.
