In 1996, the USDF Hall of Fame was established, with the induction of USDF's founding father Lowell Boomer. The Hall continually grows with each new induction as we learn to appreciate more about the wonderful contributions that people and horses make to the sport of dressage.

The USDF Hall of Fame was established to honor and preserve the achievements of the people and horses that made outstanding contributions to the growth, development, quality, popularity and appreciation of dressage in the United States.
