Plans for the new year, Pan American Games, and the continued growth in the Developing and Youth programs are well underway with fundraising, strategy, scheduling, and programs. The Pan American Games dressage selection for small and big tour will include European competitions. A continued presence at European CDI's and CDIO's are in focus with a push for US presence for all divisions: Young Horse, Young Riders, U-25 and Big Tour/Nation Cups. Unfortunately, there are some date conflicts on the calendar with the Pan American Games. Work on the best plan forward to attend as many competitions as possible to continue great momentum towards the 2016 Olympic year.

The USEF Observation & Strategic Training Sessions will pick back up in January in FL. and CA. Debbie McDonald will be continuing with her revamped Developing program. George Williams and Charlotte Bredahl are currently in full swing with the US Dressage Youth Programs, and will soon be announcing their 2015 schedule.

With the 2015 Reem Acra FEI World Cup Final in Las Vegas in April, the USA will be hosting one of the premier events of the year.
