2021 will be the last year the Rebecca Broussard International and National Developing Riders’ Grants will be offered. The committee would like to thank Jerome Broussard and the entire Broussard family for supporting these valuable grants for so many years.
Interviews for this year’s International and National Developing Rider’s Grants will be held at The Event at Rebecca Farm and will be limited to riders entered in both the CCI4*-L and the CCI4*-S. For those riders entered, please sign up for your interview at the show office upon arrival. Interviews will take place Tuesday through Thursday before your dressage tests.
Unlike previous years, stipends to assist with travel to the event are not being made available in 2021.
As of this date, 18 riders have benefited from these incredibly generous grants, and this year will see that number rise to 20. Recipients have made their mark at the highest levels of the sport with many going on to compete internationally. Many could be seen in action at the Kentucky Three-day Event 5* this year, and we congratulate all of them for their achievements.
While the developing rider grants are coming to an end, the Broussard family has asked the committee to explore other exciting grant opportunities for the coming years, so please keep an eye out for these to be announced.
The entire sport and our riders have benefited immensely from the kindness shown by the late Rebecca Broussard and her husband Jerome, as well as all the family. They have done so much to develop and grow the sport and for that, we are eternally thankful.

Are you interested in competing in the sport of eventing but aren’t quite sure how to get started? Do you have a horse that is looking for a new career? Consider participating in a USEA New Event Horse (NEH) competition in 2023! The USEA NEH Program was created to be an introduction to the sport of eventing for both horse and rider, and the 2023 NEH Calendar is now available here.
Will Coleman had a huge 2022 with his string of horses, including a team silver medal at the FEI World Eventing Championship in Italy on Off The Record and top four-star placings with Chin Tonic HS, but it was Dondante whose consistency paid off to earn the Standlee Premium Western Forage USEA Horse of the Year title.
Julie Murray has loved horses since she could breathe, so when her daughters showed an interest in Pony Club and then eventing, she was thrilled to go along for the ride.
Murray started volunteering at the Fallbrook Pony Club near her home in Fallbrook, California, serving as an intermediate district commissioner.
