US Equestrian Updates Dressage Elite, Pre-Elite Program Lists

Apr 18, 2018 - 2:43 PM

The U.S. Equestrian Federation updated the Dressage Elite Program and Pre-Elite Program lists. “We have conducted a series of training observation sessions with our Pre-Elite combinations, as well as home visits with our Elite athletes on both coasts through the winter and the spring,” said technical advisor Robert Dover. “The standard in both of these groups is growing rapidly and increasing the depth of great combinations.

“We are looking forward to the remaining CDIs in the U.S. this year, strong representation in European CDIOs and CDIs, our national championships, and, of course, hosting the FEI World Equestrian Games [North Carolina] in September,” he continued. “It is guaranteed to be an exciting year, and I feel very optimistic about our eventual selection of a strong team for the FEI Word Equestrian Games in Tryon.”

The Elite Program was established to provide support and resources to athlete/horse combinations that have proven they are internationally competitive. Combinations qualify for the program based on scores received at CDI***/CDIO*** or above competitions in the last 12 months.

In alphabetical order, the following athlete/horse combinations meet the criteria for Elite Program membership:

Shelly Francis (Loxahatchee, Florida) and Patricia Stempel’s Danilo, a 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding

Laura Graves (Geneva, Florida) and her and Curt Maes’s Verdades, and 16-year-old  Dutch Warmblood gelding
