Global Dressage Festival Alive and Well!

Global Dressage Festival Alive and Well!


In spite of recent reports to the contrary, the upcoming 2013 season of the Global Dressage Festival is full steam ahead! The first pre-season national show of the season was held this past weekend, and plans for the full Adequan Global Dressage Festival are well underway with more splendor than ever!

Recent articles have exposed the latest Jacobs Family attempts to disrupt the Festival and all equestrian activities at the site. Nevertheless, as all of their legal efforts to stop dressage in the past have failed, this latest injunction has only served to expose one party's true motives and is not considered a risk in reality.

The advance Press Release from Equestrian Sport Productions provides a full preview of the season--with more exciting news yet to be announced!
