GLADSTONE, New Jersey, May 23–As a result of a gift from dressage horse owner Betsy Juliano, the U.S. Equestrian Team Foundation is funding four clinics–two on the West Coast and two on the East Coast–for Elite High Performance combinations this fall to be administered by the U.S. Equestrian Federation.

The clinics will be given by U.S. Olympic and World Equestrian Games medalist Steffen Peters and USEF Technical Advisor Anne Gribbons. They will be by invitation only for horse and rider combinations on the USEF Grand Prix Long List and are designed to provide guidance and instruction for the top dressage horses and riders in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games.

The USEF Dressage High Performance Committee will develop specific invitation criteria for the clinics based on recommendations from Anne Gribbons.

“We are so pleased to be able to offer these clinics thanks to the generosity of Betsy Juliano,” said USET Foundation President, Jane Forbes Clark. “Betsy has made a gift commitment through 2014, which will ensure that these important clinics take place, helping to prepare our horses and riders for international championship competition. Betsy truly understands the value and importance of making sure our riders receive the high level of training and guidance that will continue to make the United States competitive among the top Dressage nations.”

Betsy is the the owner of Havensafe Farm in Middlefield, Ohio and Wellington, Florida. She is a member of the USET Foundation National Advisory Committee, a competitor in adult amateur division and the owner of international dressage prospects.

Further information, including dates, locations and invitations will be available in the coming months on the USEF and USET Foundation websites.

The USET Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s elite and developing international, high-performance horses and athletes in partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation.
