Sunday was the exciting conclusion of an amazing week of competition at the 2023 US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan®! Six rings, from the prestigious Alltech Arena to beautiful show rings that dot the Kentucky Horse Park, were utilized by competitors ready to dance their way down the ‘Centerline of Champions!’
We crowned Champions in the Training Level Junior/Young Rider, Training Level Adult Amateur, First Level Freestyle Adult Amateur, Second Level Junior/Young Rider, Second Level Open, Third Level Freestyle Adult Amateur, Fourth Level junior/Young Rider, Fourth Level Freestyle Open, and the Prix St. Georges Adult Amateur on the penultimate day of competition.
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.
Here is a gallery of sights from the fourth and final day of the competition!
