Lexington, KY – The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that, in addition to the four USEF National Coach presenters at this year's Adequan/USDF National Symposium (December 3-4 in Del Mar, CA), the symposium will feature an all-star line-up of horses and riders. Joining us will be:
• 2011 Pan Am Team and Individual Gold Medalist Steffen Peters aboard Weltino's Magic, and team mate Marisa Festerling, individual Bronze medalist, riding Big Tyme
• Olympians Leslie Morse and Charlotte Bredahl
• USDF Grand Prix Reserve Champion Horse of the Year Wizard and Adrienne Lyle, and top 10 finisher Breanna and Kathleen Raine

Attendees will also see USEF Youth Coach Jeremy Steinberg ride during the Young Horse presentation, in addition to presenting the youth portion of our symposium, and we will have a very special equine guest joining us on Sunday, for a freestyle presentation. These riders along with other well known local equestrians including Mette Rosecrantz, David Blake, Marie Medosi, Ignacio Moran and Shannon Peters complete our line-up.
"For the first time in one arena, we will not only have the four USEF National Coaches, but also many of the top American dressage riders and horses together, providing an unprecedented educational weekend. We could not be happier to work with all of these wonderful talents and experts in order to present an event of this caliber to our attendees," stated Stephan Hienzsch, USDF Executive Director.
