Eighty-three horses were presented to the ground jury of Anne-Mette Binder (DEN), Jane Hamlin (USA), and Andrew Bennie (NZL), all of whom passed the first horse inspection and will proceed to the dressage phase of competition over the next two days.

Two horses were sent to the hold box: Imperial van de Holtakkers, ridden by Joris Vanspringel (BEL), and Rumor Has It N.O.P., ridden by Merel Blom (NED). Both were passed upon representation.

Team announcements will be flowing in over the next few hours, including the highly anticipated U.S. Team announcement. Ride times will also become available this evening. While you’re waiting, check out the USEA’s fence-by-fence preview of Captain Mark Phillips’ WEG cross-country course. To follow along with all the action this week, check out the USEA’s fast facts.

Dibowski Wants You to Feel the Rhythm at the 2020 ICP Symposium

Yesterday Andreas Dibowski said that he was ready for the “fun stuff” and today he had the chance to share his knowledge of both show jumping and cross-country to a large audience who attended day two of the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) Symposium. The morning started out in the ring at Barnstaple South with three groups of riders – Beginner Novice, Training, and Preliminary, and three groups of the same levels took to the cross-country in the afternoon. While the exercises and jumps got progressively harder throughout the day, the warm-ups and themes stayed the same.

Andreas Dibowski’s Words of Wisdom From Day 1 of the 2020 ICP Symposium

The USEA Educational Symposium is a unique opportunity each winter for eventers to gather together to soak in knowledge. The first two days of the 2020 Symposium focus on the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) with attendees learning how to be better, more effective instructors. German Olympian and world-renowned rider Andreas Dibowski is this year’s guest instructor and he spent the first day dedicated to dressage with one Advanced show jumping group to wrap-up the day. Dibowski taught the instructors to teach using demo riders and horses from Beginner Novice to Advanced of all ages, breeds, and sizes.
