Friday, January 28, 2005

The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is proud to recognize six new USDF Associate Instructors. This category recognizes instructors who have received positive evaluations from participating in the USDF Instructor Certification Workshops. Each applicant must have participated in at least one workshop in the lungeing, riding, and teaching categories.

The Instructor Education program is designed to educate dressage riders, instructors, and aspiring instructors. It is also a wonderful learning opportunity for all students of dressage to improve their practical skills and for more advanced students to integrate classical theory and its correct application with solid practical skills.

Associate Instructors:
Lisbeth Bengtsson, WI
Laurie A. Holverson, ND
Donna Meyer, TX
Lisa Marie M. Post, NJ
