The Dressage Foundation is pleased to announce that Kristina Harrison-Antell and I Felix (CA) have been selected to receive this year's $25,000 Anne L. Barlow-Ramsay Grant for U.S.-Bred Horses. The purpose of the Grant is to showcase talented American-bred horses ridden by United States citizens, by providing money to train and compete in Wellington, Florida, or in Europe.
I Felix is a 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding bred by Natalie Hinnemann (CA) and owned by Jocelyn Towne. In 2021, Kristina and I Felix were USEF Developing Prix St Georges Reserve National Champions and are current members of the Kundrun USEF Dressage Development Program. Kristina plans to use the funding to train with Charlotte Bredahl and compete in Wellington, FL, this winter season.
Kristina said, “I have always been an advocate for U.S. breeding, so this award holds special meaning for me. Felix and I are honored to be the recipients of the Anne L. Barlow-Ramsay Grant for U.S.-Bred Horses and will be using the funding to continue our education and compete internationally at the Global Dressage Festival this coming season. Felix is a very special horse, and I am so lucky to be able to work with his talent on a global stage. I am so grateful to The Dressage Foundation, Felix’s owner, Jocelyn Towne, and all of my supporters, sponsors, and coaches.”
The Anne Barlow-Ramsay Grant Fund was established at The Dressage Foundation in 2008 by Dr. Barlow-Ramsay to fulfill her desire to support U.S.-bred horses that are competing on the international dressage stage. Since 2008, eleven recipients have been awarded a $25,000 grant for training or competition, including those who have successfully competed at the highest level of sport such as the Olympics, FEI Dressage World Cup, FEI Dressage Nations Cup, and the World and U.S. Young Horse Championships. Applications are due August 15 each year.
