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.
