A very enthusiastic group of judges, riders, trainers attended my course Jan 10-11th, organized by ADU. The organization was, from the preparations on up to the departure back to Holland, detailed with an excellent follow up. I would say in judge's terms a 10+. The college room was an ideal place to teach, with high quality audio and computer systems. The group wanted to learn as much as possible and was very concentrated and coöperative. The hospitality great, with very helpful and friendly people. I enjoyed the whole 2 days and am happy I have some new friends in the Texas area.
Cheers, Wim

My recent visit to Austin Dressage Unlimited, prompted by the indefatigable Carol Schmickrath! was one of the most perfectly organized judge's seminars I have ever had the pleasure to conduct. The entire team in Austin work selflessly for the sport, and went 'above and beyond the call of duty' to ensure that all the participants were treated to the warmest hospitality and were fully informed and involved in the proceedings. I can truly say that this was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my Dressage career.

Most sincerely,
Stephen Clarke
FEI Judge General
President of IDOC

Chef d’ Equipe – An Equestrian's Cookbook

A Collection of Recipes for the Active Equestrian

rider After much anticipation, the “release” of the Austin Dressage Unlimited horse-themed Cookbook is here! This very unique cookbook is a fundraising project for future dressage educational programs. Included are great recipes that are meant to be quick and easy, in order to give us more free time to ride.

The cookbook has the usual sections of yummy recipes for humans, along with a section for horse treats. All with clever horse or riding related names, such as Happy Horse Hash Browns, My Breeches are Too Tight Buns, Spent My Fortune on Horses Spiced Orange Tea, Bucking Buttercup Cakes, and funny one-liners in some of the recipes. Topped off with wonderful color horse photography throughout.

Every equestrian should own one. Purchase one for yourself, and more as gifts for each of your horsey friends. It will be a really fun, and useful cookbook to own.
