By Yellow Horse Marketing for Cornerstone Event Management BURBANK, CA – Canadian dressage riders made themselves at home at the Dressage at Woodside CDI*/Y/J in Woodside, CA, May 19 – 22, 2011, dominating the small tour and earning moving one step closer to their Pan American Games dreams. As a valuable qualifier for the Northern California region, horses and riders competed for coveted qualifying scores from judges Axel Steiner (FEI 5* USA), Hilda Gurney (FEI 4* USA), and Brenda Minor (FEI 4*CAN). Despite ongoing concerns with a recent EHV-1 outbreak among cutting horses in the western United States, organizers worked with state officials to closely monitor and make the best of a difficult situation. ”The initial upheaval resulting from a large number of scratches was handled extremely well by management,” noted Steiner. “Revised class schedules were published in a timely manner and the show ran very smoothly for the three days.” Canada's Dominique Culham Buckland and “Utango DG” enjoyed two CDI class wins at Woodside.
