While the goal is to rotate the finals west, the USDF Executive Board, after evaluating current options, has decided that more research and time is needed. This additional year will allow for further evaluation in regard to venue, the timeline for regional championships which serve as qualifiers, and the impact of location on competitor attendance.
"The US Dressage Finals needs to be at a practical location for competitors and at a facility that can provide international standards, while maintaining financial viability for USDF," stated USDF President George Williams. The Executive Board feels more lead time is needed and has voted to delay the move west, from the Kentucky Horse Park, until after 2016.
