Waredaca is launching a new program to honor its dear friend and supporter, the late Jimmy Wofford.

The Waredaca Eventing Education Foundation (WEEF), a 501(c)(3) charity, was formed with the mission to support eventing education at Waredaca Farm. The Foundation's first project is the creation of The Jimmy Wofford Legacy Fund to promote eventing education. This fund will reward one adult amateur and one junior whose intention is to train and compete in the Waredaca Classic Three-Day Event in October. The vision is for this to be an ongoing, perpetual scholarship that will honor Wofford and keep the spirit of the three-day long format.

Wofford was a strong supporter of the long format in general, and the Waredaca Classic Three-Day in particular, and was a regular presence at the Waredaca's monthly Expert Days until very recently. The team at Waredaca and the Foundation are thrilled that Wofford's wife, Gail, has given her enthusiastic blessing to this effort, "especially because I know how Jim always encouraged the long format competitions," she said.

You can find more information on WEEF, the Jimmy Wofford Legacy Fund, and the scholarships here.

The application for this scholarship can be accessed on the Jimmy Wofford Legacy Fund page.

How the Wilton Fair Grant and Essex Horse Trial Grants are Helping Cosby Green's Eventing Dreams Come True

I was lucky enough to receive the Wilton Fair Grant and the Essex Horse Trials Grant in the tail end of 2023 to put towards my 2024 adventures with my horses. I moved over to England with three horses in March 2023 and towards the end of the year I had decided I wasn’t quite ready to travel back home to America just yet. Receiving these grants has made staying over an additional year possible, and I couldn’t be more thankful!
