In celebration of our annual Breeder’s Cup - The Copa USPRE - the United States P.R.E. Association presents the results of another FEI season for the PRE horses of USPRE.

With a number of new pairs presented in 2022, this year’s Grand Prix division was very strong. Unlike former years, the Small Tour was a smaller group.

During 2022 we had a record number of declarants for the Copa USPRE, and a number of horses who had strong results but did not meet the qualifying criteria. We encourage our members to review the criteria for this national Cup so that all competitive horses can participate.

The Dressage Committee has decided to name all of this year’s qualified riders to the USPRE Dressage Team for 2023. These riders will receive USPRE clothing, press coverage, and any other support USPRE can provide.

Congratulations to our Champions and our 2023 Dressage Team!
