Each year three types of Rebecca Broussard International Developing Rider Grants are awarded: Travel Grants, the National Developing Rider Grant ($10,0000), and the International Developing Rider Grant ($50,000). The Travel Grants are awarded to multiple riders who display the potential qualities of an international rider. These grants are used to offset some of the travel expenses to compete at The Event at Rebecca Farm CCI3* and/or CIC3* held from July 18-22 in Kalispell, Montana.

With The Event at Rebecca Farm just a few short weeks away, the USEA Foundation’s Rebecca Broussard International Developing Riders Committee has been hard at work assessing applications from riders from all over the United States who are eligible to receive the 2018 Rebecca Broussard Developing Riders Travel Grants.

The Committee has selected the following riders to receive 2018 Rebecca Broussard Developing Rider Travel Grants:

Andrea Baxter
Maya Black
Kristen Bond
Helen Bouscaren
Ellen Doughty-Hume
Matthew Flynn
Ashley Hays
Alexis Helffrich
Alexandra Knowles
Emilee Libby
Jordan Linstedt
Caroline Martin
Jennifer McFall
Bobby Meyerhoff
Hillary Moses
Katherine Rivera
Frankie Thieriot Stutes
Chris Talley

Prior to the start of the event, recipients of the Travel Grants will participate in interviews that will further assist the committee when making the final decision in November on which riders will receive the International Developing Rider Grant and the National Developing Rider Grant. The two year-end grants will be presented at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention on December 5-9, 2018 in New Orleans.

All those listed (and any level FEI competitor at The Event at Rebecca Farm) are invited to take part in the interview process at the event.

The grants are made available by Jerome Broussard and his family in memory of his wife Rebecca, whose greatest wish was to help riders attain their dream of competing on a U.S. Eventing Team at the Olympic, World, and Pan American Games.

Congratulations to all the riders who have worked so hard to prepare for the competition at The Event at Rebecca Farm. Travel safely!
