As we prepare for this year’s US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan® to be held November 7-10, we take a look back to the championship that was held in 1981. This was the first attempt by USDF to have a national championship, the current championship has been going strong since 2013.

Note: USDF strongly recommends all riders wear protective headgear when mounted.
