Challenge Breast Cancer and Support the Fight!


The Challenge of the Americas – Musical Dressage Team Quadrille Competition

The Challenge of the Americas, has evolved over the past 16 years from an afternoon dressage exhibition and luncheon in 2002, into an under-the-lights international equestrian musical dressage team quadrille extravaganza and gala. Its success and continued growth is due to its partnership in the fight against breast cancer, as well as its unique and highly entertaining format that features the ever-popular musical Grand Prix Quadrille Dressage Team Challenge – forever to be recognized as “dancing for women and men around the world.”

There are few, if any, places throughout the world where an audience can delight in the performances of such a large and distinguished group of riders and their magnificent partners. Then, enjoy an elegant evening of dinner and dancing at the Challenge Gala!

Be sure to mark your calendars for March 6, 2020 and once again plan to join the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Play for P.I.N.K. as international riders perform to world-class music and choreography in their efforts to find a cure in our lifetime.
