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 or in Wellington, Florida. The horse and rider applicants will be competing successfully at Prix St. Georges 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.
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.
This Fund was established by Pacific Northwest dressage enthusiasts to assist riders in the Region to pursue their goals of representing Team USA on the podium. It is the goal of this grant to recognize Debbie’s unique contributions to the sport of dressage while enhancing the skill and effectiveness of the Pacific Northwest dressage community. One annual grant of $5,000-$10,000 is available for an FEI rider from Region 6 (OR, WA, ID, AK, or western MT).
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.
