The Dressage Festival of Champions in Gladstone, NJ is always an exciting event, but this year’s show has the special distinction of also serving as the selection trials for the 2012 Olympic Dressage Team. Grand Prix riders will vie not only for a national championship, but also for the chance to represent the United States in London this summer. This is the first time since 2000 that Olympic selection trials have been held at Gladstone, and the show will surely be an event to remember!

Competition begins June 8-10 with National Pony Rider, National Junior, and National Young Rider championships. The National Grand Prix/Olympic Games Selection Trials Part I will also take place during this first weekend of competition. The Festival will conclude June 13-17 with National Young Adult "Brentina Cup” and National Intermediaire I championships, and Part II of the National Grand Prix/Olympic Games Selection Trials.

There is no charge for General Admission seating, and parking cost is $20 per vehicle.
