Chelsea Seburn and Rolex will head to Frankfurt, Germany, this December to represent the United States in the FEI World Cup Dressage Final for Young Riders.
Seburn, a 20-year-old from Greenleaf, Idaho, qualified for the competition with her high average of 71.45 percent aboard her 12-year-old Rhinelander gelding. The pair competed this year at the Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF National Young Rider Dressage Championship in Gladstone, N.J., as well as contesting the North American Young Riders’ Championship.
“It feels both strange and exciting to be representing not just myself for the first time but also my country,” said Seburn. “I’m very proud and feel very lucky to be in this position.”
The competition runs Dec. 13-16, and all of Seburn’s travel expenses will be paid for by the event organizer and sponsors. Seburn trains with Ernst and Jan Herrmann.
