2005 World Cup Dressage Finals

Dressage Press Release

The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that the 2005 World Cup Finals in dressage will be held in the United States. For the first time, two FEI World Cup Finals will be held in the same venue at the same time. World Cup champions in both dressage and jumping will be crowned at the conclusion of the Finals, scheduled for April 20-24, 2005, in the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV.

Following its previous hosting of two World Cup Jumping Finals (2000 and 2003), Las Vegas Events, Inc. has secured the rights from the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) to bring the World Cup Dressage Final to the U.S. for the first time since 1995 and to hold it jointly with the Budweiser Jumping World Cup Final.

Both USDF and the United States Equestrian Federation have partnered with Las Vegas Events to provide marketing support for the World Cup Finals.

First held in 1986, the World Cup Dressage Final has been held in the U.S. only once, in 1995 in Los Angeles. Germany and The Netherlands have dominated the competition, winning six titles each through 2004. The U.S. won its first title in 2003, when Debbie McDonald of Hailey, ID, and the magnificent mare Brentina emerged as champions. Brentina is owned by Parry and Peggy Thomas of Las Vegas, for whom the Thomas & Mack Center is named.

Las Vegas Events, Inc., the event producer, is a nonprofit company whose mission is to produce and sponsor events that drive tourism to southern Nevada. For more information on the 2005 World Cup Dressage and Jumping Finals, please call Las Vegas Events, Inc. at (702) 260-8605 or visit the official event Web site at www.worldcuplasvegas.com.

Founded in 1973, the United States Dressage Federation is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to education, the recognition of achievement, and the promotion of the sport of dressage.
