Participants in the RDHCW receive intensive dressage training from USEF coaching staff as well as instruction on a variety of horsemanship topics from industry experts.

“I am very excited and grateful that USEF, with the support from The Dressage Foundation, is moving forward in a time of much uncertainty to bring our fantastic youth and the U.S. dressage community from across the country to the Robert Dover Horsemastership Week,” said former U.S. Dressage Chef d’Equipe Robert Dover.

Due to COVID-19 related restrictions, no spectators will be allowed in-person at the RDHCW sessions. However, the sessions will be live streamed for free viewing via USEF Network thanks to a grant from The Dressage Foundation.
