LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Aug. 15, 2017–Liselotte “Lilo” Fore will be inducted into the Roemer Foundation/U.S. Dressage Federation Hall of Fame to honor her instrumental role in development and promotion of dressage education in the United States.
Lilo Fore, originally from Germany, was cited for being “synonymous with dressage in the United States as a competitor, breeder, trainer, instructor, and judge for over 25 years.”
Lilo started in the U.S. in 1972 developing horses and riders for national and international championships. She was an international judge from 1990 until retiring a year ago as a top ranked 5* judge. She was on the ground juries at Pan American Games, World Cup Finals, World Young Horse Championships and the 2014 World Equestrian Games.
Lilo, based in Santa Rosa, California, was a founding member of the USDF instructor/trainer program and still serves as its co-chair, an examiner, and instructor.
“The USDF is pleased to recognize Lilo with this honor,” said USDF President George Williams. “Her boundless energy, enthusiasm, and lifelong dedication to dressage has made her a force within the world of dressage. Lilo’s impact is far reaching and involves many aspects of our sport.”
