Rolex Central Park Horse Show
On Friday evening, the U.S. Dressage Team, which won the bronze medal at the 2016 Olympic Games, will be honored in a ceremony to celebrate their accomplishment.

The Rolex Central Park Horse Show runs September 21-25, 2016, in Wollman Rink in New York City’s Central Park. Don’t miss the opportunity to see these dressage horses and riders perform
 
Global superstars Charlotte Dujardin OBE of Great Britain and her incredible partner Valegro will perform a freestyle test for spectators and fans of horse sport on Saturday evening. This may be the last chance to see this dynamic duo perform live together in the United States.

At their home Olympic Games in London, Dujardin and Valegro captured the team and individual gold medals. This past month, they repeated their individual gold medal performance at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and helped Great Britain to a team silver medal.
 
Top dressage combinations will be competing in the U.S. Open Dressage, presented by The Axel Johnson Group. On Friday at 1:30 p.m. is the U.S. Open Dressage CDI Grand Prix, and on Saturday evening is the $50,000 U.S. Open Dressage CDI Freestyle.

On Friday evening during the NBC Sports Network broadcast of the $216,000 FEI Grand Prix CSI 3*, presented by Rolex, there will be a commemorative ceremony to celebrate the bronze medal achievement of the U.S. Dressage Team at the 2016 Olympic Games for team members Steffen Peters, Laura Graves, Allison Brock, and Kasey Perry-Glass, along with Chef d’Equipe Robert Dover.

“We want to honor the U.S. Dressage Team and help promote the sport of Dressage in the United States,” said Bellissimo. “Antonia Johnson and Fritz and Claudine Kundrun have been huge supporters of Dressage in this country, and this event, and we are hopeful that we can showcase these great horses and riders in this world-renowned destination. We appreciate and value their support.”
