World and National Championship of competitive equestrian drill teams.
Super Ride X: The 2012 United States Equestrian Drill Championship (USEDC) will be held at the Texas Rose Horse Park, near Lindale, from June 19-23.
The Championship will bring together drill teams and mounted color guard units from throughout the United States for top level competitions in 23 divisions – including categories for adult, youth, novice and challenged riders.
Drill Riding offers a highly competitive, yet affordable entry point into the world of high performance equestrian sport.
As a team activity, drill encourages the development of good horsemanship, personal self-confidence and a respect for others (both human and equine) in a highly supportive environment. Sadly, many of the more individually focused equestrian disciplines have, in recent years, moved further and further away from this model.
The camaraderie, 'sense of caring' and attention to detail which one observes on many of the more successful drill, quad and color guard units is closely akin to that seen at the championship levels of other team sports – baseball, football, basketball, soccer, etc.
The United States Equestrian Drill Association (USEDA) is the national governing body for drill and mounted color guard competitions. The USEDA fosters the continuation of the All Star Team, a group of top youth riders selected by their team each year, a scholarship program and nationwide drill competitions at the local, state, regional and national level.
The USEDC National Championship, Super Ride X provides community outreach to participants in all communities, inclusion of challenged riders while providing a bridge between rural, urban and suburban communities. Never in the history of the equestrian sport has such a diverse group of riders come together for national competition from the novice to the experienced all become champions.
Home to the Super Ride since 2008, the Texas Rose Horse Park is where champions come to compete at this horse and rider friendly facility.
Featured events at the 2012 Super Ride will include the USEDC National Open Division Drill Championship on Friday evening, June 22nd and the Theme Division and Fifth World Championship ride on Saturday evening, June 23rd. The USEDA All Star Ride, featuring the best nation's best junior and young rider talent will close out the weeks events. The presentation awards will follow.
