TDF to Award up to $75,000 for FEI-Level Dressage Riders
The Dressage Foundation is set to award $75,000 in 2022 to FEI-Level dressage athletes through two grant opportunities. Thanks to generous donors, TDF provides financial assistance to United States riders who plan to reach and excel at the elite, international standards of high-performance dressage.
$25,000 Anne L. Barlow Ramsay Grant for U.S.-Bred Horses: Due August 15, the Anne Barlow Ramsay Grant was created to showcase talented U.S.-bred horses ridden by U.S. citizens. This grant will provide funds to train or compete in Europe or in Wellington, FL. Applicants should be competing in Prix St. Georges or higher and be an ambassador for the American-bred horse. Past recipients include James Koford, Jennifer Williams, Lisa Wilcox, and Carly Taylor-Smith, among others.
“The development and recognition of U.S.-bred horses and breeders to the highest level of dressage is one of my own personal passions. I am so grateful to Dr. Anne Barlow Ramsay and TDF for funding the education necessary for riders to learn how to develop these special horses for the future of international dressage.” – Lindsey Holleger (NY), 2021 Anne L.
