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.
Like many other things this year, the annual summer meeting of the USEA Board of Governors looked very different in 2020. The 21 Governors spent two days meeting virtually from their homes around the country. This was USEA President Max Corcoran’s first August board meeting at the helm and she opened the call by thanking the Board for their time so far this year as conference calls have been frequent.

It's been a long road, but we've finally arrived at the end! In June of 2017, the USEA undertook a project - to tell the story of each of the currently active USEA recognized events, starting at the beginning of the alphabet and working our way all the way through to the end. Now, more than three years later, we've reached the final event on our list.
