Calling all Young Riders! If you are a member of your Area's Young Rider Program, then you will want to apply right now for the 2017 Amy Tryon Young Rider Grant. The grant is worth $5,000 to the lucky recipient and can be used to help with training and competing expenses during the 2018 season.
The Amy Tryon Young Rider's Grant was established in 2015 with contributions from the friends and family of the Olympic eventer, Amy Tryon. This fund was created to provide direct financial assistance to aspiring event riders who participate in the USEA Young Rider Program and who have aspirations of achieving the highest international level of the sport of eventing. The goal of the grant is to provide riders with limited financial resources the support they require to prepare for, and compete in, international three-day events.
The USEA Young Rider Program member must display a work ethic that exemplifies the traits necessary to achieve the highest level of international competition that was personified by the character of Amy Tryon. The grant may be used for coaching, specialized training, entry fees, living costs for horse and rider, and for travel. The funds for this grant have been made available by contributions made to the USEA Foundation.
The grant is available to riders through the year of their 21st birthday. Riders who have represented the United States on a senior international team are ineligible.
The deadline for applications is Sunday, October 8 at midnight. Please complete your application and submit it to your Area's Young Rider Coordinator for consideration by that date.
The FEI has published its Policy for Enhanced Competition Safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, aimed at assisting organizers and national federations with the safe resumption of international equestrian events in line with national and local restrictions.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) has approved additional modifications to the qualification period for the 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds. The AEC is scheduled to take place August 25-30, 2020 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, and the USEA is doing everything possible to ensure a safe and successful Championship, while also ensuring fair opportunities for all.
This article will be updated to include statements as they are released from upcoming USEA recognized events regarding actions they are taking due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants.
