TDF Awards 2024 Evie Tumlin Memorial Fund Grant To Region 9 Adult Amateur

The Dressage Foundation is pleased to announce the recipient of the Evie Tumlin Memorial Fund Grant for Region 9 Adult Amateurs as Danielle Aymond (LA). The purpose of the Evie Tumlin Memorial Fund is to provide grants to adult amateur riders who currently reside in USDF Region 9, to aid in their development in dressage and/or eventing.   

Danielle is an active member of the Southern Dressage and Eventing Association. She is also a member of the Louisiana National Guard. Danielle plans to use her grant funding for a Jeremy Steinberg clinic and to also take lessons with Yvonne Barteau. Her goal is to confirm Second Level movements with her horse and gain upper-level experience on a schoolmaster. 

After reviewing her application, the grant selection committee was pleased with Danielle’s volunteerism, training plan with achievable goals, and sportsmanship.  

Danielle said, “I am thrilled to be gifted this award to expand my knowledge with this special horse. I can only hope that we can make Evie smile down on us as we train and grow in this incredible sport. Thank you to all the super TDF committee members, donors, and staff who have made this possible. You are truly what makes this sport so special.” 

Donations to support Region 9 Adult Amateurs through the Evie Tumlin Memorial Fund are welcome.  Information and online giving are available at
