WHO IS BILL WOODS?
Judging and teaching both at home in Central Florida and all around the country, Bill Woods acknowledges more than forty-five years of experience that can help you better understand and train your horse.
He has been active on the national dressage scene since 1980, his dressage specialty arising from a broad background in balance-seat work, both on the flat and over fences.
Known for his ability to outline sound, classical goals and to . . .
communicate effective techniques to riders of all levels, Bill tries to carry on the ideals and principles he learned at the American Dressage Institute and the USDF-sponsored Violet Hopkins National Instructors Seminars and which he, in turn, was tabbed by the Hopkins staff to spread to hundreds of teachers and dozens of groups throughout the US at USDF Regional Instructor Workshops.
Bill is a USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist. He has trained and shown many horses from Training Level to FEI and continues to coach students both at the Florida shows and those whom he meets at clinics and then sends off to competitions, ribbons, and medals in their own areas. His students show at every level through Grand Prix.
Over thirty years of dressage judging at recognized shows give Bill a special perspective to help you understand what all judges are looking for and what it takes for you to succeed in the show arena.
