LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Sept. 30–Olympians Steffen Peters and Guenter Seidel will provide Developing Dressage Training Clinics on the East Coast of the United States in the Fall, the U.S. Equestrian Federation announced Wednesday.

Steffen will conduct the first clinic at the U.S. Equestrian Team Foundation headquarters in Gladstone, New Jersey Oct. 30-31. Guenter will conduct a clinic in Florida in early December.

The aim of the clinics, the USEF said, is to cultivate the future of American dressage.

East Coast athletes currently on the 2009 USEF Dressage Long List for training and athletes on the USEF Developing Rider List will be invited. Riders are urged to bring their personal trainers as part of the process to “educate, assist and promote both the riders and their trainers in order to further enhance their progress.”

Auditing will be based on rider invitation only. Each rider will be allowed to bring auditors to their individual training session. Auditors will not be allowed to observe other training sessions unless they have been invited by the rider.

Clinics to focus on developing U.S. horses and riders are expected to continue into 2010 and beyond to identify and advance dressage talent. Participation in at least one clinic may be mandatory to remain on the USEF Developing Rider List.
