Karin Offield Wins Fourth Regional Championship

Lexington, KY—To win a single USDF Regional Championship at the FEI levels is a great accomplishment for any adult amateur, but to add a fourth title to a string of championships is especially impressive. Karin Offield did just that by successfully defending her title as the Region Two Intermediaire-1 Adult Amateur Champion at the Great American/USDF Region Two Championship in Lexington, Kentucky. Offield rode her chestnut stallion Tiamo Trocadero to the victory.

“I was absolutely thrilled,” Offield said. “My stallion was wonderful and it was a lot of fun.” The event was held at the Kentucky Horse Park, which provided it own level of excitement. “The facility is a real showplace. Lexington is very, very fortunate to have such a facility. Simply being able to compete there was pretty exciting,” she said.

Like many amateurs, Offield must find time to for her training within a hectic schedule. Offield rides almost daily and also makes time for weight training and Pilates, which she feels have been invaluable to her riding. “As an athlete I do everything possible to increase my level of performance, “ Offield explained.

Offield trains with USDF Gold Medalist Mike Etherly and has taken extensive clinics with Olympians Michael Poulin and Steffen Peters. In addition to the two consecutive intermediaire-1 championships, Offield also has two Prix St. Georges Regional Championships to her credit
