Dressage at Devon Presents USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Program

Dressage at Devon is proud to partner with the United States Dressage Foundation (USDF) to present the new USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Program. “Education is an integral part of our mission,” said Lori Kaminski, President and CEO of Dressage at Devon. “This program will be important to everyone in the dressage community and will help lay an educational base for the future of the sport. We are very pleased to be able to work with the USDF and Hassler Dressage to provide this important effort.”

According to the USDF, the program, supported by Hassler Dressage, is designed to bridge the educational gap in the development of dressage horses, as they progress from showing in-hand to work under saddle to eventual competition. It will feature a live forum approach, focused on a correct, fundamental system for starting sport horse prospects. This new educational event is intended for trainers, owners, and breeders nationwide, with the goal of developing a consistent training foundation for all sport horse prospects.        

The inaugural forum will be held September 14-15, 2013, hosted by the New England Dressage Association, at Apple Knoll Farm, in Millis, MA. The forum will be led by internationally renowned sport horse development experts and educators, Scott Hassler, USEF National Young Dressage Horse Coach, and Ingo Pape. “Scott and Ingo are two of the most respected young horse experts in the industry. Their commitment and the partnership with the USDF is a giant step towards the success of the program,” added Kaminski.
