The Adequan/USDF Annual Convention is Coming to Las Vegas

Lexington, KY (September 17, 2015) – The 2015 Adequan/USDF Annual Convention is coming to Las Vegas, December 2-5.  Join the fun at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, which offers three live shows, 13 restaurants, and luxury amenities.  The annual convention offers a perfect opportunity to network with your peers, learn from some of the country’s most respected veterinarians and experts, and keep abreast with the latest developments through various forums and roundtable discussions.   The week caps off with the Salute Gala & Annual Awards Banquet, where we celebrate the achievements of competitors and honor dressage legends and volunteers.

USDF is privileged to have some of the country’s most respected veterinarians joining us for our extensive education lineup this year.  These presenters will cover topics ranging from lameness, digestive health, and alternative therapies, to the impact of arena footing, drugs and medications, and more.  In addition to the education presentations, USDF will also be offering interactive education opportunities including morning exercise classes and open forums in regard to competitions, group membership organizations, and youth.             Attendees will also have the opportunity to attend open committee meetings, USDF Regional Meetings, and the Board of Governors General Assembly where they can share ideas and see their elected officers and delegates discuss and vote on the present and future of USDF.  Other highlights of the convention include the Welcome Party and the Youth Silent Auction, which provides a prime opportunity to bid on some great holiday gifts as well as supporting the Youth Convention Scholarship Fund.

For more information about the convention, or to register, please visit the USDF website at www.usdf.org/convention/.

Founded in 1973, the United States Dressage Federation is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to education, recognition of achievement, and promotion of dressage.  For more information about USDF membership or programs, visit www.usdf.org, e-mail usdressage@usdf.org, or call (859) 971-2277.

Century Club Ride this weekend!!!

13 05 2015
This weekend we have a very special ride…A Century Club Ride!  Please make plans to watch and celebrate this achievement for Thann Hanchett!

Come join us on Saturday at Cooper Ranch when we cheer on former Las Vegas resident Thann Hanchett as he qualifies for The Dressage Foundation’s Century Club. Thann has been a constant in the Southwestern equestrian community for decades and we are thrilled he’s come home to Vegas to achieve this amazing milestone.
There are just over 200 Century Club members in the United States. The Century Club recognizes Dressage riders and horses whose combined age totals 100 years or more. Horse and rider perform a Dressage test of any level, at a Dressage show or event, and are scored by a Dressage judge or professional.
Thann is currently scheduled to ride on Saturday at 11:56 right before the lunch break at Cooper Ranch. There will be a presentation after his ride, and cake! Thann will be riding a Dutch Warmblood who was bred and shown to PSG by LVCCDS member Ann King – Thann was her first dressage instructor and she is thrilled to be able to be a part of the amazing achievement in his equestrian life.
