A horsewoman herself, Rebecca “Becky” Broussard was passionate about the sport of eventing. She served the USEA on the Board of Governors and on the Executive Committee. She was a trustee of the USEA Endowment Trust, serving as chair for many years. She owned numerous event horses for great riders such as Ralph Hill, Cindy Burge, Amy Tryon, Karen O’Connor, and Phillip Dutton, among others.
A philanthropist, Broussard supported many of the programs of the USEA and the USEF as well as supported and volunteered at her local events in Area VII. Broussard started The Event at Rebecca Farm at the Broussard Family's world-class facility in Kalispell, Montana in 2002. Today it is one of the largest eventing competition in the world.
Following her passing, the Broussard Family created two grants through the USEA Foundation in her honor, the Rebecca Broussard National and International Developing Rider Grants, designed to inspire, advance the skills, and expand the knowledge of developing riders at the national and international level. The legacy Broussard left behind is immeasurable and will impact the lives of eventers for generations to come. She was truly respected and admired by all who knew her, and the sport of eventing has benefited at all levels from her extraordinary vision, involvement, and loyalty.
