LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Dec. 11–Linda Zang of the United States will be president of the ground jury at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, the third WEG she will have judged.
Trond Asmyr, FEI Dressage Director, on Friday confirmed the appointment of Ms. Zang, of the Annapolis suburb of Davidsonville, Maryland. She replaces Anne Gribbons of the United States whose appointment as dressage technical advisor to the U.S. Equestrian Federation created a conflict in WEG judging.
“I’m really looking forward to doing my part to making the WEG a really successful event,” she told dressage-news.com. “We have a really good group of judges.”
The other members of the judging panel are: Mary Seefried, Australia; Cara Whitham, Canada; Stephen Clarke, Great Britain; Evi Eisenhardt, Germany; Maribel Alonso, Mexico, and Ghislain Fouarge, Netherlands.
Linda Zang on Fellow Traveller was a member of the U.S. team at the 1980 Alternate Olympics when 64 nations boycotted the Moscow Games.
Linda was a judge at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, the 1998 WEG in Rome and the 2006 WEG in Aachen, Germany. She has judged eight World Cup Finals, including 2009 in Las Vegas, and the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg.
In addition to competing, training and judging, she has also organized major horse shows in the United States.
