For Immediate Release
Thursday, October 24, 2019

Lexington, KY (October 24, 2019) – The United States Dressage Federation™ (USDF) announced today upcoming changes to the USDF Breeders Championship Series (USDFBCS), effective January 1, 2020:

  • Series have been condensed and reformatted to total nine individual series within the program. Some of the series names have also changed from previous years.
  • Horses will no longer be required to attend the series final of the series in which they qualify. While horses may still attend one series final competition, it can be the series final competition of choice.
  • The qualifying score to compete in an in-hand USDF Breeders Championship Series Final class has been changed to 75%.

USDF Sport Horse Committee Co-Chairs Kristi Wysocki and Natalie DiBerardinis had this to say, “Following a year that saw good growth in many of the USDF Breeders Series Championship Series Finals, and based upon an in-depth evaluation of the overall program, the USDF Sport Horse Committee feels that these changes will further enhance the series, provide flexibility to owners, and give greater opportunities for participation in the finals. We look forward to the 2020 competition season and the continued development of this important program for US breeders.”

The USDFBCS is made possible by the generous support of our sponsors.  For more information about the USDF Breeders Championship Series, visit the USDF website or contact sporthorse@usdf.org.
