Dear members, riders, instructors and breeders,
Please take note of the upcoming deadlines for The Dressage Foundation grants. There are several grants available to instructors, for breeders and western dressage enthusiasts. Please help us elevate the level of dressage education and therefore our riding, and the quality of horses in the area. Please discuss and encourage your instructor to apply, and let our local breeders and western riders know there are grants for them as well.
Please also consider making a donation to The Dressage Foundation to help support future grants and programs. You can make one directly on their website any time or participate in the upcoming Give to Lincoln Day where your gift will be matched! Donations through Give to Lincoln Day will be accepted May 1-25. The more we give the more opportunities we make available.
Upcoming grant deadlines:
May 1: US Breeder Excellence Fund: $1,000-$2,500 for US breeders to pursue educational opportunities related to breeding.
June 1: George Williams Fund for Young Professionals: $3,000-$5,000 for dressage professionals, ages 25-35, and who have established business as instructors and trainers.
