The much-anticipated CDI 5* of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) is less than a week away, and if entries are any indication, the best is yet to come. The grand finale of the AGDF season will boast over 100 entries, with 22 riders alone being invited to compete in the CDI 5* division. The AGDF 12 CDI 5*, presented by Diamante Farms and Wellington Equestrian Realty, will run from March 27 - March 30 at The Stadium at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, FL. Top riders from around the globe will descend upon The Stadium for the biggest competition of the season. Not only are small tour divisions seeing huge entries of 38 horses for the week, but young rider and junior divisions are also peaking in time for the pinnacle of winter dressage competitions.
