Kentucky Equine Research will be an official team sponsor of the Para-Equestrian Dressage Team representing the United States at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, September 25 through October 10. The Kentucky Equine Research/U.S. Para-Equestrian Dressage Team will consist of ten horse/rider combinations.
"Our Para-Equestrian Dressage Team is deeply appreciative of the commitment by Kentucky Equine Research," said Kathy Meyer, SVP of marketing and communications at USEF.
KER will be hosting the athletes leading up to and during competition, providing accommodations at their world-class facility in Versailles, Kentucky. There are currently 14 combinations being considered for the final ten slots that will make up the USEF's Definite Entry; the youngest rider is 25 years old, and the eldest is 65.
