Dear Dressage Enthusiast,
USDF invites you to attend the 2018 Adequan®/USDF Annual Convention, November 28 through December 1, in Salt Lake City, UT!
Nestled between the basin of the Wasatch Mountains and the Great Salt Lake, Salt Lake City claims a bounty of outdoor recreation and metropolitan culture. The host hotel, the Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek, is directly connected via skybridge to the City Creek Center, which boasts over 100 stores and restaurants. Conveniently located within walking distance is the Temple Square (home of the Utah Symphony and Tabernacle Choir), where you can enjoy local events, architecture, and gourmet dining. Be sure to check out the amazing cultural museums and historical sites as well.
The "Ski City" slopes of Park City (which held the 2002 Winter Olympics) are just 28 miles east of Salt Lake City, and host wonderful skiing and many other winter activities. You can also travel just 19 miles to the west and see the Great Salt Lake. Both locations offer convenient shuttles from several downtown Salt Lake City locations.
Join us to learn about the latest developments in the dressage community, influence the direction of dressage in the United States, and celebrate the achievements of those in our sport.
We look forward to seeing you in Salt Lake City!
Region 2 and the great state of Kentucky welcome you!
USDF and Region 2 are proud to invite you to attend the 2017 Adequan®/USDF Annual Convention. What more fitting of a venue than Lexington, KY. Known as the "Horse Capital of the World," Lexington is home to numerous equine related activities. Of course, a visit to Lexington would not be complete without a trip to the world-famous Kentucky Horse Park (KHP) and the home of the United States Dressage Federation. The KHP is home to nearly 50 different breeds of horses, and visitors from throughout the world tour the park and its many attractions. Home of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, and the Alltech National Horse Show, the KHP is also the location for the US Dressage Finals, which will take place a few weeks before our convention.
Lexington is truly a special and unique city that blends the best of history with the best of countryside beauty, and the excitement and activity of a cosmopolitan area filled with urban charm; all with the friendly hospitality that Kentucky is known for. Whether you are visiting with celebrity horses on tours of magnificent farms, tasting hand-crafted bourbons or just sitting and listening to fantastic bluegrass music, Lexington has something for everyone at every age.
We will be centered at the Hyatt Regency Lexington which is a prime, downtown, landmark location. It places you at the heart of everything Lexington has to offer.
On behalf of all the members and Group Member Organizations in Region 2, we look forward to seeing you at this year’s annual convention.
