The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) is now accepting bids to host the 2013 U.S. Dressage Championships, also knows as the Festival of Champions. For 2013 the Festival will be located on the West Coast of the United States.
The U.S. Dressage Championships are usually hosted at the USET Headquarters in Gladstone, NJ, forcing all central and west coast riders to make a long trip to the East Coast every year. The last time the Festival of Champions was hosted on the West Coast was in 2008 as Olympic selection trial for Hong Kong.
Competition will once again be held in six divisions: Grand Prix, Intermediaire I, Young Adult "Brentina" Cup, Young Rider, Junior and Pony Rider.
Bids will be due in the office by the close of business Friday, October 5, 2012.
To request a bid packet please contact Jenny Van Wieren-Page at (859) 225-6949, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
