    And now USDF is evidently offering "USDF University" credits for attending. Good enough for me!

    Hmm, are all the presenters, clinicians, etc., fake? Can't wait to see the imposters who stole the identities of Steffen Peters, Christoph Hess, George Williams, Arthur Kottas, Anne Gribbons, Jan Ebeling, Rudolf Zeilinger, Stephen Clark, Ingrid Klimke, Wolfram Wittig, and a bunch more whose names I have neglected to mention.

    As I said earlier, I would prefer if Stanos had used a different name for this event, but what the heck - sounds like a lot of people are attending anyway.

    Evidently the USDF is also offering credit for Parelli's Dressage Summit

    Yes, and I do NOT understand it, CP!

    I'm not attending that one. I think it's awful USDF has anything to do with him or Linda. I think USDF is just money-grubbing.

    Yeah, well I guess they felt they needed to get on the Parelli bandwagon now that Walter Zettl and Christoph Hess are.

    (Shudder) Wonder what it took to persuade them to sell their souls to the Devil?

    Don't mean to hijack, but could you tell this newbie what USDF University is about? We are going to the event in FL and I'm certainly looking at it as an educational opportunity (in addition to the fun!)

    To those worried about the use of the name, you need to understand that the onus is on the European group, not the American. If the Europeans did not file the name in the US, then they have no right to complain. It was and is fair game in the US and I see no problem with it. Then again, I'm not one of those people who seem to want one world government and no distinction between countries. I'm a made in the USA loving dinosaur.

    Just because you can do it doesn't make it right.

    I am glad they did it. They've made dressage more accessible for us little folk. I hope they do it again so I can have the opportunity to attend, and I hope they're able to field as excellent a group of experts as they did this year.

    Absolutely. And the best way to help ensure it does happen again here in NA is to support it, not try to tear it down. The organizers have put a lot of money and time into this event, and I wish them every success.

    The debate is not about the forum, but rather about the choice of its name.
