USDF Member Wins Trip to Vegas

For Immediate Release
Friday, March 20, 2009

Congratulations to Karen Abbattista, the winner of the trip for two to the World Cup in Las Vegas. She will be taking Sharron Fisher. Sharron profoundly touched her life last June when she generously gave Karen her beloved Hanoverian, Chesapeake. Karen is grateful every day for the wise old schoolmaster who's introduced her to the upper levels of dressage.

Karen is a USDF Bronze medalist and an officer for Alpha Dressage Club, a GMOaffiliated club of the USDF.

Many thanks to KyraBeth Houston of Dressage Unlimited for sharing this great opportunity with USDF. Tickets for the World Cup are available on her website.



Founded in 1973, the United States Dressage Federation is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to education, recognition of achievement, and promotion of dressage. For more information about USDF membership or programs, visit, email, or call (859) 971-2277.
