and clinician at Global Dressage Forum, Grand Prix trainer Lars Petersen will travel to his former home field, Blue Hors stud in Denmark, to share his expertise on dressage training
- My favourite thing about the sport is developing a horse from the beginning, regardless of where it takes me. The quote is Lars Petersen's, originally uttered in a 2013 interview with Eurodressage, and it summarises the rider's approach to dressage perfectly: Focus must be on developing the horse, in every little step making sure that the horse is trained in such a way that it can realise its full potential. The rider and trainer has brought a number of horses from youngster classes to Grand Prix. Lars Petersen has been a well-known figure on the international dressage scene for more than two decades. He started out as head trainer at Blue Hors stud where he spent nine years training and competing a long string of the station's stallions, before he moved across the pond and set up the international dressage stable Legacy Farms. His sport results include a 12th place at the 1996 Olympics, a tenth place at the 1998 WEG in Rome and five Danish Championships, plus a fourth place and a second place at the World Cup finals in 2001 and 2002, respectively. In the US he has bagged an impressive number of wins and placings in Grand Prix dressage, proving why he is such a successful trainer with students from all of North America seeking him out. At Global Dressage Dressage Forum he will take the spectators on a journey in equine talent development. Assisted by professional riders from Blue Hors and quality horses at three different training levels he will show the path from young horse to Grand Prix mount.

Lars Petersen opting out of this year's Olympic GamesDressageDaily: Euro Update: Lars Petersen Withdraws as Danish Olympic Team Candidate
Lars PetersenLegacy Farm's Lars Petersen is no longer in the running for a place on the Danish Olympic Dressage Team.In spite of their recent stellar performance at Raleigh CDI in the Grand Prix Freestyle, the 43-year old American based Dane has withdrawn himself from Olympic contention because of unfeasible logistics.Petersen was in the running for a Danish team place with his own 14-year old Danish warmblood gelding Success (by Silver Moon) but felt that the time schedule was too tight for his horse to comfortably settle down in Europe for the Danish Olympic selection trials."Succes is a very spooky horse and since the timing didn't work, we were only able to get one show in Europe before the CDIO Aachen [Final Danish Olympic Selection Trial] and didn't feel that was ideal," Lars Petersen's partner Melissa Taylor told Eurodressage.
"Also, our other trainer,broke his leg, so that put a little stress on Lars leaving his business."Managing their business is a big obligation with a barn full of horses and students in both their Pennsylvania and Florida locations.And there is another good reason for Petersen to settle in to the USA for the summer.
