USEF Clarification Regarding Dressage Trainer Morten Thomsen

Friday, February 26, 2010

Lexington, KY – The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) would like to issue the following clarification regarding the US Dressage coaching program. It was incorrectly reported (not on dressagedaily mph)that Morten Thomsen has been hired as a US Team coach and the USEF has applied for a visa for him. Both of these statements are incorrect. The USEF has contracted a number of highly qualified clinicians to help prepare our athletes for future international competitions. Steffen Peters and Kyra Kyrklund have both taught clinics in 2010 for the USEF and Thomsen may be available in this capacity in the future.
