The management of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games has announced that Lloyd Landkamer will be the Discipline Manager for both Para-Dressage and Dressage.
The organizing committee of the Alltech FEI* 2010 World Equestrian Games - World Games 2010 Foundation, Inc. - has named Lloyd Landkamer, of Hamel, MN, as the Discipline Manager of Dressage and Para-Equestrian. Landkamer has replaced Glenda McElroy who was originally listed as discipline manager for Dressage. McElroy who is based in California and whose obligations managing the growing list Dressage shows for her Cornerstone Events Management Company and the management for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games mutually decided it was in everyone's best interest to work with someone who was more centrally located to Kentucky. Since Landkammer was already positioned as manager for the Para-Equestrian, it made good sense to add to the management of Dressage to his duties.
Landkamer who owns DressageShowInfo.com , manages Dressage at Lamplight, the Dressage at the Florida Horse Park, as well as multiple competitions across the Midwest will bring with him his experienced staff known to many competitors in the Midwest.
Mr. Landkamer becomes one of eights managers responsible for planning, managing and directing the World Championship competitions in eight equestrian sports, communicating with the High Performance community and related organizations, and overseeing development and administration of the discipline’s budget. The eights managers will work on a contract basis with the World Games 2010 Foundation, Inc.
"The discipline managers are vitally important to the overall success of the 2010 Games," said Rob Hinkle, Chief Operations Officer for the World Games 2010 Foundation, Inc. "We are thrilled to have Lloyd Landkamer bring his knowledge and experience in Para-Equestrian events to help us achieve that success."
"It is an honor to join the competition efforts for both the Dressage and Para-Equestrian Discipline Manager," said Mr. Landkamer. "With my experience from other equestrian events around the U.S., I plan to help the Foundation put on a world-class event."
Mr. Landkamer holds a master’s degree in economics and undergraduate work in animal nutrition. He is owner and operator of Brandywine Farm, a dressage equestrian facility in Hamel, MN. He has won United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Horse of the Year awards at various levels and actively breeds quality sport horses that have won Year End Awards with national ranking within the USDF. Mr. Landkamer has extensive involvement with all levels of management of equestrian events around the United States, serving as management and secretary.
