Dressage-news.com, a premier Internet news site for the Olympic discipline, plans complete coverage by two photojournalists of the World Equestrian Games that starts in Kentucky on Sept. 25.

Ilse Schwarz, a dressage trainer and experienced reporter and photographer of major competitions throughout Europe and the United States, will join dressage-news.com’s creator and owner Kenneth J. Braddick in providing extensive photographic and text reports from the Kentucky Horse Park.

Dressage-news.com will provide detailed coverage of dressage and, in response to requests from around the world, offer highlights of other disciplines for the two weeks of the world championships held every four years and in the United States for the first time since their creation in 1990.

Ilse obtained her doctorate from the University of New England in Australia for research into synovial fluid in the joints of large animals with ramifications for treatment of arthritis before moving to Wellington, Florida, to marry Ken Braddick and pursue her goal of becoming an international dressage trainer and competitor. In addition to training and competing her own horses and those of customers, she conducts training sessions in the United States and Australia.

As an accomplished writer and photographer she has reported for several years from the CHIO at Aachen, Germany, including the 2006 WEG, as well as the World Breeding Championships for Dressage Horses at Verden, World Cups in Las Vegas and major competitions throughout the U.S.

Ken Braddick has been involved in the news industry since a teenager, as a correspondent covering wars and other events around the world, as a senior business executive, an entrepreneur creating breakthrough high tech products and services for the industry to a publisher of niche market publications, including an equestrian magazine.

In addition to covering major equestrian competitions around the world, including Olympics, WEGs, Pan American Games and World Cups, he co-owns and hosts a television program that broadcasts in prime time several hours a week of dressage, jumping and polo for four months of the International Polo Club and Winter Equestrian Festival circuits in South Florida. He is also active in efforts to develop and promote dressage.
