Craig Stanley Named Newest USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Forum Faculty Member
Lexington, KY (June 12, 2020) - The United States Dressage Federation™ (USDF) is pleased to announce Craig Stanley as the newest member of the USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Forum Faculty. Craig will be joining the ranks of Willy Arts, Michael Bragdell, and Scott Hassler. This forum aims to bridge the gap between in-hand competition, and the start of a dressage horse's under-saddle competition career, making instructor expertise in the development and training of young dressage sport horses integral. Each faculty member brings a knowledge of in-hand work, breaking, training, and development to impart on the demo riders and auditor audience members.
USDF Sport Horse Committee Co-Chairs Kristi Wysocki and Natalie DiBerardinis stated, “We're very excited to welcome Craig Stanley as a new faculty member for the USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Forum. Like our other faculty, Craig's experience encompasses the entire sport horse development process, from breeding to training into the FEI levels. We've really enjoyed watching him develop Caliente DG from the Young Horse Championships to Grand Prix, and now we see him bringing along her offspring, including Habanero CWS with whom he won both the USEF Four-Year Old & Six-Year Old National Championships. As a guest presenter during our 2020 Sport Horse Prospect Forum, Craig's sympathetic approach to the horses resonated strongly with the riders and spectators.”
Upon being notified of his inclusion as a faculty member, Craig responded, “I am pleased and humbled to accept USDF's offer to serve as a full member of the USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Forum faculty and look forward to working with USDF and the other faculty members for future events!”
