The best dressage riders in the world will soon descend on Loxahatchee, FL, all with the goal of becoming a winner at one of the country’s most prestigious dressage competitions—the 27th Annual Palm Beach Dressage Derby. This year’s Palm Beach Dressage Derby, March 4-7, has an added bonus for attracting top riders as it is a qualifier for the Selection Trials for the 2010 Alltech/FEI World Equestrian Games Dressage Team.
With more than $12,000 in prize money and awards, the Palm Beach Dressage Derby attracts the best riders in the world and also draws thousands of spectators to the Horse Park Equestrian Estates in Loxahatchee. Admission and parking are free and visitors can enjoy watching classes of all levels, including the always-popular musical freestyles, which will be held Sunday, March 7.
In addition to the spectacular equestrian competition, visitors will also have the chance to shop till they drop at the Boutiques at the Derby—over 30 stores featuring everything from tack and riding attire to artwork and equestrian-themed house wares. Concessions are also available on the show grounds.
Lead line riders will once again be center stage at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby, as the show will host the Championship Lead Line Class for the sixth year. Another highlight of the show is the Famous Derby Brunch on Sunday afternoon, with proceeds benefiting the United States Equestrian Team (USET) Foundation.
