Ride with Gold Medalist Hubertus Schmidt
The International Omaha invites upper level dressage riders to apply for an opportunity to ride with German Olympic Gold medalist Hubertus Schmidt. The International Omaha will be held April 12-15, 2018 at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha and features both jumping and dressage competition. Presented by the Omaha Equestrian Foundation, which hosted last year’s highly acclaimed FEI World Cup Finals™ in jumping and dressage, the 2018 International Omaha features a new Dressage Team Challenge as well as the ticketed Dressage Showcase with Schmidt.
In the Dressage Showcase on Friday, April 13, riders at third level or above will ride in an hour and a half clinic-style format conducted by Schmidt before a live audience. Schmidt will work one-on-one with each rider for approximately 30 minutes. Applications are currently being accepted to ride in the Showcase from riders at third level or higher, who wish to participate at that level or on a young horse aged 5-6-7.
Applications are available at: https://www.internationalomaha.com/dressage-showcase-application
Those chosen to ride in the Dressage Showcase with Hubertus Schmidt will pay $2,000, which includes the opportunity to ride in the Showcase, a stall from April 12-15, two all-session VIP dressage tickets with daily access to the VIP Lounge and Patio with complimentary food and drink, and a one-room, three-night stay in the official International Omaha hotel, the Fairfield Inn.
