Veronica Holt Dressage Technical Delegate Fund

The Veronica Holt Dressage Technical Delegate Fund is being established in memory of Veronica, who was a dedicated Technical Delegate (TD) and FEI Steward, providing training and mentorship for many Dressage TDs and apprentice Dressage TDs.  This new Fund, proposed by Veronica’s friends and colleagues in unison with the United States Dressage Federation, will be a fitting tribute to her memory, as well as a continuation of her presence within the dressage community. 

Once the Fund is seeded with initial donations, one grant will be awarded annually to a USEF Dressage Technical Delegate who has been approved by the USEF Licensed Official Committee to gain promotion from ‘r’ (Recorded) to ‘R’ (Registered).  The grant will initially be $500, to be used by the recipient to pay for costs associated with completing apprenticeship requirements at competitions.  As the fund balance grows, the amount and number of grants may increase.

Completed applications and required documentation must be submitted directly to The Dressage Foundation through the following online application on or before July 1st. The selection committee will review and discuss the applications with a final decision being announced at the USDF Convention.
