Sunday was the exciting conclusion of an amazing week of competition at the 2021 US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan®! Like the last two days, 8 rings across the Kentucky Horse Park, from the prestigious Alltech Arena to the famous Rolex Stadium, were utilized to accommodate the record number of Finals competitors!
Junior and Young Riders enjoyed their time in the spotlight, the first year at Finals that they had their own division! They crowned Champions in the Fourth Level Championship Jr/YR, Second Level Jr/YR, and Training Level Jr/YR classes.
Fourth Level Freestyle Open, First Level Freestyle Open, Third Level Freestyle Adult Amateur, First Level Freestyle Adult Amateur, Training Level Adult Amateur, Prix St Georges Adult Amateur, Prix St Georges Open, and Second Level Open also named their champions.
Awards were handed out, competitors grinned ear to ear in awards ceremonies as they trotted their victory laps, and folks started to load up in their trailers to head back home, taking with them memories that will last a lifetime.

Thanks to all the competitors, sponsors, volunteers, show staff, spectators, grooms, support teams, vendors, and everyone else that came together to make the largest Finals EVER a huge success!! Congratulations and see you next year!!!
