Wayne, Ill. – Aug. 24, 2017 – Running alongside the Markel/USEF Young and Developing Horse National Championships are the USEF Dressage Seat Medal Finals as well as youth divisions from the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions. The horse inspection for the Festival of Champions was held Thursday evening at Lamplight Equestrian Center, and it was clear sailing for all entrants, who will go on to compete for top honors over the next several days. Junior Rider Allison Nemeth’s 13-year-old Hanoverian gelding Dafoe was held for re-inspection but passed.
Riders vying for the AGCO/USEF Junior Dressage National Championship and the USEF Children National Championship will all have their first tests Friday. The USEF Pony Rider Dressage National Championship and the AGCO/USEF Young Rider Dressage National Championship will head down centerline for the first time on Saturday.
