The purpose of this annual grant is to showcase talented American-bred horses ridden by United States citizens, by providing funds to train and compete in Europe. The horse and rider applicants will be competing successfully at Prix St. George or higher, and demonstrate an ability to move forward into High Performance competition. The successful applicant will demonstrate an ability to be an ambassador for the American-bred horse in Europe.
The Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize was established at The Dressage Foundation, to provide financial assistance for coaching and training to a talented, committed, qualified rider whose plan is to reach and excel at the elite, international standards of high performance dressage.
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.
The Patsy Albers Award will be presented to the highest placing dressage rider (Intermediare I or Grand Prix) at the United States Equestrian Federation High Performance Championships, who was also a rider competing for the United States at a North American Junior/Young Rider Championship.
