The USEA Foundation is now accepting applications for the Broussard Charitable Foundation Trust Going Forward Grants through Sept. 15. Established in 2020 amidst the pandemic, the Broussard Charitable Foundation Trust took notice of the challenges and obstacles in the sport of eventing. Rather than focus on the negatives, the team behind the trust saw the opportunities for individual reflection, assessment, and evaluation. From this progressive thinking came the evolution of the Going Forward USEA Members Grant. This educational opportunity provided the possibility to transforming members’ lives, careers, and horsemanship, along with enriching the sport of eventing.

In 2020 the Broussard Charitable Foundation Trust generously donated a gift of $25,000 to the USEA Foundation for the Going Forward Grants. The Grants were intended as a one-time opportunity and were offered only in 2020. However, the reception they received and the success achieved by the grant recipients inspired the Broussard family, through their Charitable Foundation Trust, to offer them each year for an additional three years.

Qualified applications will be at least 18 years of age. Applicants seeking ECP Certification must have read and met all qualifying criteria listed here. Applicants wishing to complete the Eventing Officials “r” Training Program should confirm that they meet the requirements set for officials as described in the US Equestrian Licensed Officials Policies and Procedures, Section 9, 9.1 Eventing Judges and 9.2 Technical Delegates.

Applicants choose from the following programs:

  1. Horsemanship Immersion Program
  2. USEA Eventing Coaches Program
  3. Eventing Officials “r” Training Program

Grant applications may be found here and are due by September 15th.
