Staff Picks: Our Favorite Items in the USDF Store


The USDF National Education Center in Lexington, KY is home to the Lendon F. Gray Bookstore.  Not near Lexington?  We also have an online store for all your virtual shopping needs.  From educational books, DVDs, clothing, & accessories, we offer everything a dressage lover could want!  Here are a few of the most popular items among the USDF  team.

Taylor – USDF Vest

“It’s a great light weight vest. I can layer anything under it, a sweater, pullover, or long sleeve shirt. It’s comfortable to wear all day at the office (or home office) or to wear to the barn and ride in. I love vests anyway because your arms are free from the bulk of a jacket. “

This item is currently on clearance, so sizes are limited.

Amanda – Quilted US Dressage Finals Jacket

“It’s a medium weight jacket that holds the heat around your body, but isn’t too bulky in the sleeves. It’s comfortable to move around in, and the bottom has a little elastic, so it stays close to your body. It’s great for in or out of the barn!”

 Alex B – USDF Ariat Prix Sleeveless Polo

“The sleeveless polo is great to keep cool for summer riding lessons while maintaining a professional look and avoiding awkward tan lines!”

Charlotte W – Dressage Scarf by Frederique’s Studio

“I like the colors, and it has horses. It goes with a lot of outfits.”

Chelsey – USDF Hoodie

“I love my USDF Hoodie.  It is super comfortable & keeps me warm when riding.”

Sharon – On the Levels DVD

“As an instructor, I can easily lend them to my students who benefit from watching their test being ridden.”

Lacy –Better Rider Better Ride

“I’m not riding right now, and need to keep my fitness up… I also have a tendency towards being crooked in the saddle and have stiff hips, so Pilates and balance exercises aid in addressing that.”

Alex T – Tervis Stainless Steel Tumbler

“It’s a practical item that I use almost daily. It keeps my drink cold for hours and it doesn’t sweat.”

Cristen – Dressage Pulley Horse or the USDF Travel Bag

“I love the Dressage Pulley Horse because he is super cute and can be placed into so many different positions.  I have one in my office and at home! I also love the USDF Travel Bag because it is very roomy and has lots of pockets and places to keep items in place.”


Amber – 101 Dressage Exercises

“This book is so handy to keep in the arena! Beside each exercise it notes the degree of difficulty, and thoroughly explains how to execute the exercise for the most benefit of both horse and rider. It has some great ideas to shake up the monotony in your training.”

Ross – The American Training Program

“The American Training Program is a great training tool for all levels. Each DVD in the set addresses a different step towards the FEI levels, with training from some of the best in the business!”

Emily – USDF Power Bank

“The small size is great for being able to keep it in my purse, and charge my phone on the go!”
