The forum, supported by Hassler Dressage and hosted by the New England Dressage Association, will be held September 14-15, 2013 at Apple Knoll Farm, in Millis, MA. The forum will be led by internationally renowned sport horse development experts, and educators, Scott Hassler, USEF National Young Dressage Horse Coach, and Ingo Pape, one of Germany's most respected breeders and horsemen.
"I'm very excited about the upcoming inaugural USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Forum in September. We have selected a talented group of horse and rider combinations that should give us a super variety to show the steps and challenges in starting the three year old sport horse. My good friend Ingo Pape and I will work with these combinations throughout the forum to help them get a great "head start"”, stated Hassler.
Ingo Pape is co-owner of Scara Boa, the 2013 World Championship for Young Dressage Horse 5-year-old Champion.
Walk-ins will be accepted on-site at the forum, so make plans to attend today!
