    Cruzan repeats as champion

    North Port rider wins world titles in dressage

    Last year, Melissa Cruzan attended the Western Dressage World Championship Show in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, as a rookie. The hope of the 14-year-old North Port resident was appropriately modest. Return home with a ribbon. Melissa accomplished that, and a whole lot more. Riding her horse Hug Me Hotrod in the intro and basic divisions earned Melissa two junior class (14-18) world titles. She was the overall points champion and finished the top scoring Florida rider.

Honoring Our Veterans

October 7, 2019

By Holly Clanahan There aren’t many things that stop horse people in their tracks at a show. But the playing of the national anthem, paired with the presentation of the American flag, is a definite. At the 2019 WDAA Western Dressage World Championship Show, that patriotic display is even more evocative, as it spotlights an amazing organization that has partnered with WDAA to honor our nation’s veterans. The American flag is being presented by United States Marine Corp veteran Sgt. Jimmy Welch, who is competing at the World Show aboard an 8-year-old Mustang mare named Little Red Hot. Joining him to present the POW flag was fellow competitor Patti Gruber,...

Full Steam Ahead

October 7, 2019

By Thallia Blight Alexa Murphree is a very determined pre-teen. At 12, she is showing her Paint horse, Hesatufimpression, at the 2019 Western Dressage World Championship Show after only seven months of Western Dressage instruction. Suzanne and Paul Murphree of Canton, Georgia, adopted Alexa from China when she was 3, and the little girl required open-heart surgery shortly thereafter. But instead of letting that slow her down, Alexa insisted on getting a big mare named Princess not long after her surgery. She has been riding ever since. Suzanne is very proud of her daughter’s focused, perseverant attitude and the insights Alexa has acquired at such a young age. Alexa is...

October 7, 2019

By Holly Clanahan Lisa Mann looks at her daughter and granddaughter and knows how lucky she is. Her daughter, Cassie Bullard, is soaking it all in, too. Eleven-year-old Gabriella Bullard, the third generation, might not realize how uniquely special the 2019 Western Dressage World Championship Show is for her family, but she’s sure having a good time here with her pony. All three generations are competing at the World Show – and although they live right next to each other in Dresden, Tennessee, and routinely show together – they’re making this an extra-special occasion. “Not many people can say they get to do this,” Cassie says. “There’s plenty of times...

Mackenzie’s Journey

October 3, 2019

Story by Brie Nelson Photos by Prose By the age of 4, it was obvious that Mackenzie Nelson processed things differently than other children around her. We became aware that she was concerned about things on closer to an adult level and needed to understand detailed plans of her future and safety. Just after she turned 5, we discovered that Mackenzie was struggling with extreme anxiety, executive functions, moderate to severe ADHD, as well as an abnormally high IQ. It wasn’t until several years later that we fully understood that Kenzie’s anxiety was actually five different types, all pushed together. It is truly amazing how much her little mind and...
