The purpose of the Shannon Foundation Fund for Judges’ Licensing is to provide financial support to dressage judges to participate in activities related to obtaining a judging license of “recorded” (‘small r’) or higher. The Shannon Foundation Board of Directors, at the request of dressage professional Julie Shannon (GA), established the Fund to create a strong pipeline of judges in the United States. The amount of the grants can vary depending on the need and request of the applicants but are at least $1,000.
This fund will provide an annual $1,000 grant to a current or graduate rider with a Pony Club Rating of A, B, or C rating to attend an educational event of his/her choice. Preference will be given to riders with an A or B rating.
