KDA Spring Warm-Up and 27th Annual Dressage Show will Host CDI3* Again in 2013

RELEASE: March 6, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Kentucky Dressage Association

Lexington, KY
-The Kentucky Dressage Association Spring Warm-Up and 27th Annual Dressage Show takes place May 23-26 at the Kentucky Horse Park, and for the second year will host a CDI3* in addition to offering attractive prize money and competitive classes. As an added incentive, riders hoping to compete in the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions presented by Dutta Corp. this fall could have the chance to ride in the Rolex Arena.

KDA is the management organization for the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions presented by Dutta Corp., which takes place at the Kentucky Horse Parks Rolex Arena for the first time Oct. 8-12. The festival will hold its customary six national championship divisions — Grand Prix, Intermediaire I, the Brentina Cup for young adults, Young Rider, Junior, and Pony rider.

“KDA is excited about managing the Festival of Champions in October and wants those competitors striving for that USEF invitation to join us at our May CDI, for a great show in the Rolex Arena,” said Michelle Morehead, president of KDA.

The KDA spring shows will conduct all CDI3*/ CDI*/CDIY/CDIJ/CDIP classes and many others in the Rolex Arena, site of 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games dressage and show jumping. KDA management, which anticipates more than 1,000 rides during the four-day show, will offer CDI prize money of $12,300 and national show prize money of $3,600. National show open, adult amateur, and KDA member high-score prize money will total $4,400.

In an effort to encourage greater community interest in dressage, KDA is working with the Kentucky Horse Park for a special World of Horses presentation Saturday, May 25. Central Kentucky Riding for Hope, which teaches riding to the physically and mentally handicapped, will also explain its mission and introduce its horses to the public. That same day KDA will host a cancer walk in memory of Mary Kearney, who was a KDA member, horse lover and dressage enthusiast. The community will be invited to participate in the walk and to stay and watch an exciting dressage freestyle competition that evening.

In 2012, the KDA spring show drew competitors from 17 states, plus Canada and Spain. The CDI portion attracted many top riders hoping to secure spots for the 2012 London Olympics.
