We’ve extended our Splash of Color feature on
YourDressage! Whether your horse is a registered Paint, Appaloosa, Knabstrupper, or Gypsy Horse, sports a patched or spotted coat, or wears lots of chrome, this month is for you!
Dressage enthusiasts who ride colorful horses have the opportunity to earn special awards through the
Adequan®/USDF All-Breeds Awards as the American Paint Horse Association, Appaloosa Horse Club, Knabstrupperforeningen for Danmark (KNN), Gypsy Horse Registry Of America, and Gypsy Vanner Horse Society are all Participating Organizations.
We recently asked our social media followers to share photos of their loudly colored horses, and let us know what makes these horses so special. Below, you can see some of their photos and stories, and check out
Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, and Part Five! Keep an eye out for more galleries and exclusive stories featuring these incredibly special horses through the end of January 2022!
