Lexington, KY – This fall the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) will be offering Developing Dressage Training Clinics with Olympians and . With such prolific clinicians, these opportunities will be an asset for cultivating the future of dressage in the United States. The first clinic will take place in Gladstone, NJ at the USET Foundation Headquarters on October 30-31, 2009 conducted by Steffen Peters. A second clinic is planned for early December 2009 in Florida with Guenter Seidel. Please see the USEF website for more information as it becomes available.
East Coast athletes currently on the 2009 USEF Dressage Long List for training and athletes on the USEF Developing Rider List will receive an invitation sent by the USEF Dressage Department. Riders attending the clinic will be strongly encouraged to bring their personal trainer to attend the clinic. The purpose of these clinics is to educate, assist and promote both the riders and their trainers in order to further enhance their progress.
Auditing will be based on rider invitation only; each rider will be allowed to bring auditors to their individual training session. Auditors are not permitted to observe other training sessions unless they have specifically been invited by another rider to audit.
These clinics will focus on developing horse and riders in the United States. USEF High Performance Dressage Committee anticipates continuing similar Developing clinics into the 2010 year and beyond in order to further identify and advance the dressage talent in the United States. Participation in at least one of the Developing clinics may be mandatory to remain on the USEF Developing Rider List.
