The Adequan® Global Dressage Festival’s first week (January 14-17, 2016) of competitions included the Grand Prix World Cup qualifier, the Small Tour (Prix St. George/Intermediaire I), Amateur and Young Rider divisions in Wellington, Florida. With the first CDI having honored the late devoted show manager Lloyd Landkamer, athletes have a total of seven CDIs within this 12-week winter competition season to demonstrate to the judges the strengths and confidence of their horses that support meticulous training. Each competitor sets out with different horses exhibiting diverse abilities and audiences become better educated while watching step-by-step techniques in how riders meet the physical and mental demands associated with the sport.
