2005 USDF National Convention & Symposium to be Held in Los Angeles
Sunday, May 29, 2005
This year's National Symposium will give participants the extraordinary opportunity to learn from U.S. Dressage Team coach Klaus Balkenhol. "Dressage," as expressed by Balkenhol, "becomes an art only when it's a joy for the horse as well as for us." Klaus Balkenhol was coach of the 2004 U.S. Bronze Medal Olympic, 2002 U.S. Silver Medal World Equestrian Games, and 2000 German Gold Medal Olympic Teams. Also presenting with Klaus Balkenhol will be Gerd Heuschmann, D.V.M., the 1989-1990 division head of breeding for the German National Federation.
The National Symposium will begin with a lecture format on Friday night, December 2, and will continue with demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center.
Los Angeles promises to provide the perfect setting for activities outside the convention. Be sure to check www.usdf.org for future updates, as they become available, on workshops, lectures, governance meetings, the USDF Trade Expo and much more.
