The Dressage Foundation has announced new application deadline dates for its $25,000 Anne Ramsay Grant for U.S.-Bred Horses and for its $25,000 Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize.

Deadline dates have been moved up to August from previous fall and winter deadlines so riders have more time to plan for the next year’s training and competitions.

Applications for the $25,000 Anne L. Barlow Ramsay Grant are due August 15th.  The purpose of this grant is to showcase talented American-bred horses ridden by United States Citizens.  The horse and rider applicants must be competing successfully at Prix St. Georges or higher and demonstrate an ability to move forward into High Performance competition.  Funding can be used for training and competition in Europe or in Wellington, Florida.

Applications for the $25,000 Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize are due August 31st.  The Prize provides funding for coaching and training to talented, committed, qualified riders with plans to reach and excel at the elite, international standards of high performance dressage with horses that have potential to succeed at that level.  Selection criteria include merit and need.  Funding can be used for training in Europe or in the U.S.
