TEMECULA, California, Feb. 15, 2019–The West Coast Dressage Festival World Cup and national show has been condensed into two weekend days after downpours caused Friday’s competitions to be delayed.

More than 8 ins./20.3cm of rain over the show grounds Thursday caused the delay in starting the second show in this year’s West Coast series, an occurrence that event organizer Scott Hayes described as “a year’s worth of rain in one day.”

This is the second year of the WCDF circuit that Scott launched in 2018 with four CDIs aimed at offering in winter world international competitions including World Cup qualifiers aside from the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida–2,600 miles/4,200km away on the other side of the country. Six World Cup events have been scheduled at Temecula for 2019.
