Rebecca Broussard Travel Grant Recipients Announced

The members of the USEA Foundation’s Rebecca Broussard Grant Committee met on Wednesday, July 3 and awarded travel grants totaling $22,975 to 19 US riders entered in The Event at Rebecca Farm.

The USEA Foundation would like to express its deep appreciation to the Broussard family for making these valuable grants available to assist riders to reach their goal of one day riding for America. Over the last nine years, the Broussard family has contributed almost $200,000 for travel grants alone. These grants help riders participate in the interview process at the event, which is a necessary step on the road to eligibility for the $50,000 Rebecca Broussard International Developing Riders Grant, won last year by Frankie Thieriot Stutes and awarded at the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention in December.

Now on Course: Abby’s Road - That Was Then, This is Now

When my daughter Jacquelyn turned 9, she and I started taking riding lessons together for some quality mother-daughter time. I had hoped to share my love for horses with her so we gave it a try. A few years of lessons led to a deeper commitment - horsemanship - and Jackie showed the fortitude for the hard gritty work required.
