USDF Launches new Youth Dressage Sport Horse Breeder/Handler Seminar

Lexington, KY (May 26, 2015) - The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce its partnership with Dressage at Devon to create a new sport horse seminar geared toward youth.  This new seminar has been created to familiarize the younger generation with the dressage sport horse industry.  The seminar will be held over two days, September 28-29 at Dressage at Devon, and will consist of classroom and practical handling sessions, along with the opportunity to observe competition classes and practice judging.  Participation is limited to USDF members between the ages of fourteen and 23, with only twelve spots available.

ā€œDeveloped by the USDF Sport Horse Committee, this program is oriented toward youth with an interest in sport horse breeding.  We are so excited that Dressage at Devon has offered to help us kick off our first program this fall, to familiarize youth with the breeding and showing of dressage prospects and breeding stock,ā€ stated Kristi Wysocki, USDF Sport Horse Committee Chair.
