Dressage competition has been underway now for over a month, with competitor and organizer compliance not only well established and in place, but with full cooperation of all involved. 

And now, horses and riders from all over the country are energized and traveling via air, RV, and horse vans, to descend on the beautiful Lamplight Equestrian Center, in Wayne Illinois. Lamplight has been the home of the Markel/USEF Young Horse and Developing Horse Championships for several years, with the USEF Dressage National Championships, known as The Dressage Festival of Champions added. This year competition with be held, August 18-23, 2020.

Now under new ownership by the HITS organization, Lamplight has been leased to the USEF for this competition. Currently they are safely hosting over 700 hunter/jumpers and are now sanitizing and maintaining all COVD Guidelines to insure the competition will go on.

While some have chosen not to participate this year, the quality of riders and horses is still a healthy list of Americas finest in riders, horses and breeders.
