Have you always wanted to compete at the beautiful Rebecca Farm in Kalispell, Montana? Here is your chance! Thanks to the generosity of the team at Ocala Horse Properties, two lucky riders will receive funding to assist with their trip to and from Rebecca Farm. Don't delay, the application period for this grant closes on April 20!

The Details

The Ocala Horse Properties Rebecca Farm Flight Grant will be awarded annually to two (2) horse and rider combinations, one who is competing in the CCI3*-L and one in the CCI4*-L at The Event at Rebecca Farm. The riders must be USEA members residing in Areas I, II, III, or VIII at the time that they apply for the grant.

Additional Grant Information:

  • Each horse and rider combination will get round trip airfare to and from The Event at Rebecca Farm from a location on the East Coast determined by Ocala Horse Properties.
  • Excludes all other expenses such as hotel or local transportation, i.e. rental car, etc.
  • Entry into the event will be the responsibility of the grant recipient, and due to the popularity of the event, it is recommended that entries be submitted when registration opens on June 7th.
  • The CCI4*-L opportunity is targeted at Advanced level riders. The rider must have completed two (2) CCI4*-S in the past twelve (12) months.
  • The CCI3*-L opportunity is targeted more broadly to include rising stars. The rider cannot have competed above the CCI4*-S level. The rider must have completed two (2) CCI3*-S in the past twelve (12) months. The horse must have done two (2) CCI3*-S events at a minimum.
  • Grant recipients are ineligible to reapply for the grant for five years following selection.
  • If the horse intended for competition becomes unable to compete leading up to The Event at Rebecca Farm the rider can sub in another horse who meets qualifications in a timely manner. If that is not feasible then an alternate horse and rider combination, selected through a random drawing may receive the award. If neither of these combinations can compete then the money will remain in the grant fund until the following year.

Grant applications will be accepted up until the week prior to the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event and the drawing is intended to be announced during the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.

Applications for the Ocala Horse Properties Rebecca Farm Flight Grant are due by midnight eastern time on April 20, 2022. Recipients will be selected by a random drawing held by the Ocala Horse Properties Team assisted by representatives of The Event at Rebecca Farm and the USEA Foundation during the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.
