The members of the USEA Foundation’s Rebecca Broussard Grant Committee have announced the riders who have been awarded travel grants for The Event at Rebecca Farm. Over $28,000 in grants were awarded to 26 U.S. riders.

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 over $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 Maya Black, as well as the Rebecca Broussard National Developing Rider Grant, won last year by Marc Grandi. Both of which are awarded at the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention in December.

Dorothy Crowell’s Tips to Taking on the USEA Classic Series

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to compete in a traditional long format Three-Day Event? Can you imagine the thrill of three additional phases leading into cross-country? In the early 2000s, eventing began to shift away from long format events and toward modern short-format competitions. Not all is lost though! The United States Eventing Association (USEA) created the USEA Classic Series to give riders a taste of the old school experience. These competitions preserve eventing’s history and allow riders at the Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels to take on the challenge of traditional long format events.
