The 2014 United States Festival of Champions including the World Equestrian Games selection trial will be held at Gladstone, New Jersey June 5-8.

The championships presented by The Dutta Corp. will be at the century-old U.S. Equestrian Team Foundation headquarters an hour west of New York City.

The selection of Gladstone was made over an effort by several top California-based riders to host the championships in Southern California. The extra flying time for horses from the U.S. West Coast to Europe for the WEG in Normandy, France was a factor raised in the decision.

The six championship divisions are at Grand Prix, Intermediaire I, Young Adult Brentina Cup, Young Rider, Junior and Pony Rider.

The championships were held for the first time in Lexington, Kentucky this year but drew few spectators.
