Scott Hassler Speaks at Dressage at Devon Forum



−Scott Hassler

will be the speaker at the Dressage at Devon Forum on Wednesday,

September 26, 2007. During The Breeding and Development of the

Young Dressage Horse participants will enjoy a brief lecture

as well as a lively question and answer discussion session. A buffet

dinner will be served.

“We are very excited to have Scott Hassler at Dressage at Devon,” says

Melanie Sloyer, Board Member of Dressage at Devon. “Education is an

important piece of this event and Scott brings a wealth of knowledge

to the forum.”

Hassler, President and Director of Training for Hassler Dressage,

brings a wealth of experience to the Dressage at Devon Forum. A

veteran of eventing and open show jumping competition, Hassler rode

for the early Holsteiner organization in the U.S. as a teenager,

preparing horses for auction and sale out of the Holsteiner

headquarters in Virginia. As a young adult, Hassler turned his

talents, passion and energies to the sport of dressage and warmblood

breeding. In Germany, training with the late Herbert Rehbein, he

began to understand more deeply the connection between breeding and

sport. Returning to the US, Hassler built the breeding program at

Hilltop Farm, simultaneously training and developing a dozen horses to

Grand Prix. He was listed on the USET's Short List, and was a finalist

for the Pan American Games Selection in 1995.

Hassler created the Young Dressage Horse Trainers Symposium in 2005,

is a member of the USEF Dressage Committee and the USEF Breeding

Committee, and has chaired the USDF Sporthorse Committee since 2001.

His leadership has helped bring about such developments as the

sport/breeding related record-keeping system now used in the USDF and

USEF. He is the dressage representative for the USEF Strategic

Planning Committee, assisting in the long-term planning for the

country's national horse sport organization, as well as the USEF Young

Horse Coach.

The Breeding and Development of the Young Dressage

Horse Forum will be held in the Devon Room at the 33rd Annual

Dressage at Devon Horse Show, on the Devon Horse Show Grounds in

Devon, PA. The Forum will begin at 7:00 (doors open at 6:00 pm.).

Tickets are $35. For information or to purchase tickets, contact Anne

Moss at 610-316-4294 or annemoss@verizon.net.

Dressage at Devon is the highest rated international dressage

competition and most complete breed show outside of Europe. Olympic

medalist Robert Dover calls Dressage at Devon “the standard by which

all American horse shows should be judged.” Dressage at Devon takes

place at the Devon Horse Show Grounds, Route 30, in Devon,
