The Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame
In 1996, the USDF Hall of Fame was established, with the induction of USDF's founding father Lowell Boomer. The Hall continually grows with each new induction as we learn to appreciate more about the wonderful contributions that people and horses make to the sport of dressage.
The USDF Hall of Fame was established to honor and preserve the achievements of the people and horses that made outstanding contributions to the growth, development, quality, popularity and appreciation of dressage in the United States.
The following Lifetime Achievement Award winners, through their unselfish, dedicated efforts represent the many ways in which USDF has been served, supported, and influenced into becoming what it is today.
The USDF Member of Distinction is a prestigious national award that annually recognizes one USDF member who has demonstrated exceptional commitment in his or her local area or region toward carrying out USDF's mission: "dedicated to education, the recognition of achievement, and the promotion of dressage"; or who demonstrates longevity of excellence in the sport of dressage and who has made outstanding contributions to the growth, development, quality, popularity and appreciation of the sport of dressage at a local or regional level.
