US Riders Leave July 30

Olympic News - From Gil Merrick in Aachen - Managing Director USA Dressage Sport Programs

On July 25 the first group of horses will ship to Hong Kong – the horses from the USA ship on July 30th – and we will have two weeks after arriving in Hong Kong to let the horses settle in and go through the training  program designed by our National Dressage Trainer, Klaus Balkenhol, that allows them to peak when our first horse goes down the centre line on August 13th for the Grand Prix competition that determines who will win the team gold medal for the 2008 Olympic Games.

Thanks Mary for all you do to support our sport and for everything you provide to your Dressage fans to help our sport thrive .  I’ll keep you posted on how things are going for the US team.

Thnak you Gil for the incredible job you do for our team as well! We look forward to hearing from you, and more photos!
