          Lexington, KY (September 2, 2011) – The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that the annual USDF Sport Horse Seminar will be held October 29-30, 2011 at Majestic Farm, Inc. in Batavia, OH.  Comprised of both classroom lecture portions and hands-on evaluations, the sessions will give valuable insight into four major areas: ideal movement and conformation of a sport horse, considerations when selecting breeding stock, show ring strategies, as well as competition rules and judging guidelines.  Noted USEF 'S' and DSHB 'r' Judge Kristi Wysocki and USEF 'S' and DSHB 'R' William Solyntjes will be the seminar instructors at this great educational event. Each has a long list of judging credentials and will impart their vast knowledge in this personalized format.
          This educational weekend will be packed with expert hands-on instruction and an opportunity for attendees to utilize their newly acquired skills in a real world setting. Majestic Farm, as well as other area breeders, will provide demonstration horses representing a cross-section of today's modern sport horses.
          These are two full days designed to educate breeders, riders, trainers, judges and potential owners about the qualities desired in a sport horse and how to rate those qualities.  Other topics covered are basics of preparing horses to be shown in-hand and competition rules and procedures. Additionally, this seminar will serve as a prerequisite for becoming a USEF-licensed dressage/sport horse breeding judge.
