Preview Contenders for Rolex FEI World Cup™ Final and Pan American Games

Topnotch dressage riders from across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and South America will compete in the Stadium Jumping, Inc. Dressage Series at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF), providing a preview of some of the contenders aiming for this year’s most anticipated events – the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Final for Dressage, to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in April; and the Pan American Games, to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in July.

U.S. dressage riders at WEF aiming for the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Final will compete in the USEF HP Grand Prix qualifiers with the goal of achieving scores that will place them among the top 12 in the nation invited to the U.S. League Final in Burbank, California (March 29-April 1), that ultimately determines the two U.S. representatives for the Las Vegas event.

Riders at WEF with their sights set on the Pan American Games will compete in the USEF HP Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I qualifiers with the goal of notching scores that will place them among the top 12 in the nation invited to the Selection Trials in Gladstone, New Jersey, that determines the four-member squad for Rio de Janeiro.

The USEF HP classes at WEF are also qualifiers for riders aiming to earn scores to be among the top 12 in the nation who are invited to the USEF national championships – the 2007 Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF National Grand Prix Championship and the 2007 Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF National USEF Intermediaire I Championship/Pan American Games Selection Trials. The championships will be held in June at the USET Foundation Dressage Festival of Champions presented by Paul Miller Inc. and PhelpsSports.com in Gladstone, New Jersey.
