Day 2 of the 2021 US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan® was packed with excitement! With a record number of competitors this year, making it the largest Finals ever, 8 indoor and outdoor rings were utilized, spreading across the Kentucky Horse Park from the prestigious Alltech Arena to the famous Rolex Stadium. It truly is the Centerline of Champions!
Champions were named in the Grand Prix Adult Amateur, Intermediate 1 Open, Grand Prix Open, Fourth Level Adult Amateur, Training Level Open, Third Level Freestyle Open, Second Level Adult Amateur, and Intermediate 1 Adult Amateur classes.
At the end of the evening, all competitors gathered in the Alltech Arena for the Bluegrass Competitor Party, where they enjoyed a taste of traditional Kentucky fare and watched the Grand Prix classes. The Welcome and Opening Ceremonies gave competitors a chance to hear from leaders from USDF and presenting sponsor Adequan®, as well as be introduced to the judges.
