The USEA Foundation and The Eventing Riders Association of North America have the opportunity to guarantee the long-term future of the Liz Cochran Memorial Groom’s Award thanks to a pledge from the Lufkin Family Foundation. The late Liz Cochran spent many years ensuring that Abigail Lufkin’s horses were turned out to perfection and she became one of Abigail’s closest friends. Liz passed away far too young after a battle with illness and it was Abigail’s desire to keep her memory alive that led to the creation of the Liz Cochran Memorial Groom’s Award. All donations to the fund will be matched dollar for dollar by the Lufkin Family Foundation up to $50,000 securing the availability of the award for many years to come.
Eventing grooms are the backbone of every rider’s support team and without them, the chances of success are greatly reduced. Endowing this award will guarantee that these very special professionals will continue to be recognized annually for years to come. You can show your support for eventing’s grooms by donating to the Liz Cochran Memorial Groom’s Award fund here.
