(Lincoln, Nebraska) May 26, 2011 – The Dressage Foundation is pleased to announce a special video project in honor of founder Lowell Boomer's 100th birthday on October 12, 2011.
 
The Dressage Foundation invites those who knew or trained with Lowell, or those who have been touched by the work that Lowell has done for the sport of dressage to submit a video clip celebrating this milestone.  These videos can include birthday wishes, thoughts, and reminiscences.  Please include your name (and the name Lowell knew you by, if it has changed) as well as how you know Lowell at the beginning of your video.  Photos of you or you with Lowell would also be appreciated, whether those are shown as part of the video or mailed/emailed to the Foundation office to be included in the final video compilation. 
 
Lowell is the founding organizer of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) in 1973, and The Dressage Foundation in 1989.  Lowell Boomer's vision has produced two premier Dressage organizations, structured and operating as separate entities, one focused on education, the other on funding.  Lowell was named by the Chronicle of the Horse as "one of the fifty most influential horsemen of the Twentieth Century."  He has devoted a large measure of his time, talent and treasure to the world of Dressage, leaving a rich legacy for our sport.
 
Join us in greeting him for his milestone 100th birthday on October 12, 2011, through this special video project.
 
All video clips will be included in a DVD presented to Lowell on his birthday, on October 12, 2011.  Cards and letters may also be sent to the Foundation office at 1314 ‘O' Street, Suite 305, Lincoln, NE 68508.  Please include your contact information with your videos and cards or letters.  For alternative delivery methods (email, secure website, etc), please contact the Foundation office at (402) 434-8585.
