USDF Statement, August 27, 2020
Attention Region 6 Competitors:
After careful evaluation it has been determined that it is not feasible to host the Great American Insurance Group/USDF Region 6 Dressage Championships at DevonWood Equestrian Centre due to the uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic. USDF respects the difficult decision made by the DevonWood Organizing Committee and appreciates the considerable efforts made.
USDF has awarded the 2020 Great American Insurance Group/USDF Region 6 Dressage Championships to Donida Farm. The competition is tentatively scheduled to be held October 2-4, 2020 at Donida Farm, in Auburn, WA.
USDF relies on championship hosts and management to provide a top-notch competition experience to showcase the best of the best in Region 6. We are certain that the Donida Team will be able to provide a safe and successful event within COVID-19 USDF best practice considerations, USEF guidelines, and local government restrictions that may exist at the time of the competition. We also encourage you to review the Washington State Phase 2 COVID-19 Requirements for Agricultural Events, under which this competition is allowed to operate.
We wish you all the best in your 2020 competition endeavors!
