Strides for Equality Equestrians is excited to announce that the application period is open for the Ever So Sweet Scholarship! Applications will be accepted online at www.Stridesforequality.org until April 15 and the recipient will be chosen by May 1 for the summer term which runs June-August at Sara Kozumplik’s Overlook Farm in Berryville, Virginia. It is made possible by Edy Rameika, Sara Kozumplik, and the USEA Foundation who have supported SEE from the very beginning. Without them this one of a kind program would not be possible!

This is an outstanding opportunity for a young person who wants to expand their riding, horsemanship, and equestrian network on their career path as professional horseperson. It is an immersive program with busy days and lots of learning. Prior recipients Helen Casteel and Sierra Lesny had ample time in the saddle with exposure to truly top class trainers. They met world class vets and farriers and learned from the best organizers and grooms in the business as well. You can catch up with their adventures on the SEE Ever So Sweet Scholarship page on Instagram and Facebook.

This is a fully funded scholarship provided through Strides for Equality Equestrians and its partners mentioned above. It includes all expenses associated with board & training of one horse, rent for the recipient, a small stipend, transportation to Virginia and to competitions, entries, lessons, and farrier care. It is truly a unique program that gives riders a head start or a step up in their career.

If this sounds like a program that you would benefit from on your professional pathway apply today at www.StridesforEquality.org/blog/eversosweet!
