IPHDA - International Performance Horse Development Association
I had a chat with Rod Miller, president of IPHDA yesterday to find out his take on Western Dressage and the associations promoting it. Rod is a long time NRHA judge. I've known Rod for years. He's originally from Ontario.
Rod names his body control training: performance horse development. Rod's performance horse development has been developed for both the english and western disciplines.
By talking to Rod, I found out that his ideas are generally the same as mine. I joined his association and have become a professional in his association.
As I get more familiar with his association, I will be looking to get more involved in it and see how it can promote body control, foundation training and western performance horse and rider development.
