For Immediate Release
Thursday, October 11, 2007

          Lexington, KY (October 11, 2007) - United States Dressage Federation (USDF) has announced the newly revamped business membership available for the 2008 membership year, December 1, 2007 to November 30, 2008.  The USDF Business Membership (BM), which previously was divided into two levels, has been combined into one to provide a better value package that is more cost effective to the member.  BM dues will now be $175 and benefits will include member-discount rates at USDF events, a 10 percent trade show booth discount, a 15 percent advertising discount, eligibility to rent all or part of the USDF mailing list consisting of over 30,000 members, USDF Connection, the organization's members-only magazine, a listing on the vendor resource list hosted on the USDF Web site, and a copy of the USDF Directory.

          This new category will also meet all membership requirements for owners for year-end awards purposes, which is of particular interest to those businesses that own and breed horses.

          Cindy Vimont, Senior Director of Member Services, adds, "We look forward to serving the needs of both small and large businesses, and hope that our business members take advantage of all that we can offer through this new combined benefits package."

          For more information on the new USDF BM, please contact the membership department at (859) 971-2277 or via e-mail at
