The U.S. Equestrian Federation is about to expand its Dressage Developing Program in a big way. Thanks to a donation by U.S. Equestrian Team Foundation Trustee Akiko Yamazaki, the USEF will now offer seven Developing Clinics and two Developing Training Camps in 2012.

The camps and training sessions will feature instruction by U.S. Olympian and USEF Developing Coach Debbie McDonald for up-and-coming American talent. 

“I would like to thank Akiko and the USET Foundation for their continued and generous support of this country’s high performance programs,” McDonald said. “Akiko’s vision for a stronger country with more depth is exciting. We all want to see the sport in this country grow and realize it is not going to happen overnight. I am excited about the idea of taking a few combinations from each coast at the end of year and having a multiple-day camp. Working together we will build the future of dressage in the U.S.”

The two Developing Training Camps will be held in the fall of 2012 over four days. The camps will focus on training and performance, sports psychology and media training. New Jersey will host one of the camps, California the other.

The Developing Clinics will take place in Florida, New Jersey and California and will be by invitation only. Invites will be given out with preference given to horse and rider teams on the Developing Rider list.
