Did you know that the USEA Foundation currently administers 15 grants and scholarships designed to help event riders reach their goals?

The Haller Scholarship for the Education of Eventing Officials was established in 2016 in memory of the late Roger Haller and his wife, the late Ann Haller. Designed to provide financial assistance to licensed officials who are working towards promoting to the “R” license, the “S” license, or FEI licenses, the Haller Scholarship for the Education of Eventing Officials provides $5,000 scholarships to qualified applicants.
Throughout his lifetime, Roger Haller made immense contributions to the development and implementation of the USEA’s educational programs. It was important to Roger that the next generation of eventers participate in the sport in a whole new way and in order to support eventing and shape the next generations to come. One of his critical observations was the dwindling pool of US “R”, “S”, and FEI officials and the need to continue to satisfy the growing number of competitions by having a readily available group of qualified, licensed officials. The Haller Scholarship for the Education of Eventing Officials works to increase the number of eventing judges and technical delegates who are able to officiate internationally.

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
