United States Dressage Federation National-Level Trainers' Conference To Feature Kathy Connelly

USDF Press Release


The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that the 2004 National-Level Trainers' Conference on October 23-24 at Cañon Ridge Farms in Castle Rock, CO, will feature internationally recognized dressage competitor, trainer, coach, and author Kathy Connelly. Connelly will present two full days of live demonstration and an evening lecture on the "Fundamentals of Training: Combining Theory and Technique - Integrating the Riders' and Horses' Points of View."

New attendance criteria will allow trainers and riders of all levels to take advantage of this unique opportunity. One notable addition allows professional trainers to bring their students, for an unmatched educational experience.

Connelly has won national titles at the FEI level and has trained horses and riders to the same level. Among others, she has trained and coached the 1995 North American Young Riders (NAYR) Champion, the individual silver medalist at the 1999 Pan American Games, the 2003 Canadian World Cup Champion, and the silver medal team at the 2003 Young Rider team competition in Australia. Connelly herself represented the United States at the Dressage World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Connelly is also an advocate for excellence in the sport of dressage in the United States, contributing her time and knowledge as a member of the U.S. Equestrian Dressage Committee and as chair of the U.S. Equestrian subcommittee for test writing. She also serves as a member of the U.S. Equestrian Licensed Officials Committee and the USDF Planning Committee. She served as co-chair on the USDF Evaluation of the Certified Instruction Program, is now a member of the USDF Certified Instruction Steering Committee, and is a USDF Certification Examiner.

Debbie Cranston has generously donated the use of her Cañon Ridge Farm, in Castle Rock, CO, for the live demonstration portions of the conference. The evening lecture on Saturday night will be held at the Douglas County Events Center.
