USDF Launches New Online Video Feedback Portal

For Immediate Release
Monday, July 12, 2021

Lexington, KY (July 12, 2021) – The United States Dressage Federation™ (USDF) is excited to announce the launch of its new online video feedback portal for young horses. This portal offers a unique opportunity for riders, owners, and trainers of under-saddle dressage sport horse prospects (must be three or four years old as of January 1 of the current year), to obtain feedback from members of the USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Forum faculty. Currently, this faculty is made up of Scott Hassler, Willy Arts, Michael Bragdell, and Craig Stanley, all leaders in the industry in assessing, developing, and training dressage prospects.

Upon receipt of the video, required application, and appropriate fee, each applicant will have their video randomly assigned to a faculty member. Faculty members will then review the video submission and provide detailed feedback to the applicant. Select videos along with faculty feedback will also be used to develop additional sport horse education to be offered through USDF University.

Founding faculty member Scott Hassler stated, “we are excited to offer this online platform as a meaningful outreach project, focused on the continued importance of education and development of young horses.”  

To access the online portal, submit videos, or learn more, visit the USDF website. For questions related to this, or other USDF offerings related to sport horse, please contact the USDF office at or call (859) 971-2277.

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.
