Lexington, KY – The United States Equestrian Federation, Inc.® (USEF) invites licensed dressage competitions to apply to become an official 2010 “qualifying competition” for the USEF Dressage High Performance Programs.
The USEF Dressage High Performance programs include the following:
- USEF National Championships for Grand Prix and Intermediaire I Divisions
- USEF Qualifying Events (CDI/Grand Prix only) for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian
Games Selection Trials
Competitions licensed for dates from July 1, 2009 – July 15, 2010 will be considered at this time. CDI competitions will be automatically approved for qualification. Therefore, if your competition is a CDI 3*/5* or CDI–W, it will automatically be approved for both the Grand Prix & Intermediaire divisions. If your competition is a CDI 1*, it will automatically be approved for the Intermediaire division. However, please note that a completed application must be received by USEF prior to the May 25, 2009 deadline. A completed application for each licensed competition must be submitted and received by May 25, 2009. Applications received after this deadline will NOT be considered.
In an exciting development for this year and to streamline the collection of applications, a new on-line application is available via the USEF website at this link: http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/breedsDisciplines/discipline/allDressage/HPQualCompetition.aspx This on-line form allows for easy electronic completion and submission of competition applications.
