Help For Dressage Instructors
This is for education of all who instruct or train. Founded by Maryal Barnett, the program offers five annual grants of $1,000 each to USDF GMOs for Instructor education AND up to six annual grants of up to $1,500 to individuals in pursuit of Instructor Certification. GMO grants will be issued on a "first-come-first-served" basis each year; individual grant applications will be due no later than February 1st and July 1st each year. As the Fund grows, additional grants may become available to more groups, organizations and individuals.
The Dressage Foundation is pleased to offer funding to instructors to train in the United States. Two $2,000 scholarships and one $6,000 scholarship are available each year for dressage instructors to train for an extended period of time away from home.
This $5,000 award will recognize and honor excellence in the teaching of Dressage, to a USDF Region 9 Dressage Instructor. The Dressage Foundation administers this annual award.

Established by Renee Isler, this fund was originally created to help applicants to the "USDF Junior/Young Rider Clinic Series." While the Renee Isler Dressage Support Fund continues to meet this need, it has also grown in scope and funding available. Funding is now available for a variety of uses for Young Riders and professionals.
Established at The Dressage Foundation by friends and supporters of Olympian Michael Poulin, the purpose of this Fund is to provide funding support for programs and projects that enhance the quality of Dressage in the United States, through any and all of its component disciplines - riding, competing, training, instructing, and judging. Grant applications should contain bold, creative, innovative ideas for the improvement and strengthening of Dressage.
