2004 U.S. Young Dressage Horse Championships

The 5-year old Hanoverian stallion Royal Prince and 6-year old Oldenburg gelding Revolution won the 2004 USEF/Markel Young Horse Dressage National Championships held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, September 10-12, 2004.

Susanne Owen Hassler reigned supreme in the 5-year old division aboard Hilltop Farm's bay stallion Royal Prince (Rohdiamant x Prince Thatch xx). Hassler bested a field of 19 entered competitors and beat reserve champion Dorie Addy-Crow. Addy-Crow presented Iron Spring Farm's KWPN stallion Sir Sinclair (Lord Sinclair x Flemmingh).

In the 6-year old division, Danish rider Lars Baekgaard was undefeated aboard the Oldenburg gelding Revolution. Owned by Dr. Mary Hughes of Moorestown, NJ, Revolution is a Oldenburg (GOV) branded gelding by Royal Diamond x Furioso II. Reserve Champions were Ashley Fornell and her own Rykaard, a KWPN gelding by Kimberly x Caruso.
