About The Rebecca Broussard Developing International Riders Grants
The Rebecca Broussard Developing International Riders Grants are designed to assist and to encourage the development of Event Riders at the highest level of the sport. These grants will be awarded to offset some of the travel and training expenses in the pursuit of achieving the qualities of an international rider. These Grants are not available to any rider that has already achieved the honor of representing United States of America at the international CCIO 3* or CCIO4* Eventing competitions.
The Rebecca Broussard Developing International Rider Grant Fund has been separated into two types of grants. The first grants will be awarded to multiple riders that display the potential qualities of an international rider. These grants will be used to offset some of the travel expenses to compete at The Event at Rebecca Farm, held on July 23- 25, 2015. From this group of competing riders and riders that did not receive the initial grant, but still qualify to compete at The Event at Rebecca Farm FEI Eventing levels, and who have participate in the on-site interviews from committee panel, the larger grant will be awarded. This larger grant can be used to offset some of the expenses incurred to compete at international FEI events held outside of the United States.
The Rebecca Broussard Developing International Rider Grant Fund Committee has been assembled and will be tasked with evaluating applications and awarding Grants. This grant program was developed and was implemented with the warmest respect and adoration of Rebecca Broussard by the following grant committee: Sarah Broussard, Kevin Baumgardner, Loris Henry, Beth Lendrum, Louise Leslie, Karen O’Connor, Howard Simpson, Kyra Stuart, Richard Thompson, Diane Pitts, Sharon Anthony and Jo Whitehouse.
