Olympian, McDonald, confirmed for PVDA Ride for Life Dancing Horse

Upper Marlboro, MD--The Potomac Valley Dressage Association (PVDA) has

confirmed Debbie McDonald as the Dancing Horse Challenge celebrity

guest speaker on the evening of Saturday, June 27 at their

weekend-long PVDA Ride for Life? Dressage Show. Dover Saddlery and

Nutrena, as platinum sponsors this year, are also generously

sponsoring Ms. McDonald?s appearance at the event.

Celebrity guest speaker, Debbie McDonald, is an Olympic and World

Equestrian Games bronze medalist and Pan American gold medalist, as

well as the first U.S. rider to hold the title of Dressage World Cup

Champion. She has represented the United States in the 2004 and 2008

Olympics, 2003 and 2005 World Cup, and 1999 Pan American Games. Ms.

McDonald has also graciously agreed to donate a riding clinic to be

auctioned off to support the Ride for Life? cause.

"This is a chance for you to make a difference by attending, raising

donations or becoming a sponsor at the 2009 Ride for Life? to benefit

breast cancer, a cause that affects us all, including those in Olympic

Sport. Be with us on the special evening Saturday June 27th to hear

Debbie McDonald and see a number of her fellow Olympic and National

Championship riders compete at the Dancing Horse Challenge. Let us

make it as our own personal challenge to together fill the 3,000 seats

at the Prince Georges Equestrian Center, and meet our fund-raising

goals for 2009. We are counting on you!" says PVDA President and Ride

for Life? Co-Chair, Marne Martin-Tucker.

Now in its sixth year, the PVDA Ride for Life? has already raised over

$161,000 in rider donations and sponsor contributions for The Johns

Hopkins Avon Foundation Breast Center in Baltimore, Maryland.

Saturday evening?s Dancing Horse Challenge has become one of the

largest equestrian freestyle performances in the Mid-Atlantic Region

and is popular with both the sport horse and non-equestrian

communities in the area.

The show is held at the Prince George?s Equestrian Center in Upper

Marlboro, MD outside of Washington, D.C. and hosts over 200 competing
