The USEA Foundation’s Rebecca Broussard International Developing Rider’s Committee will interview the grant recipients prior to the start of the event. A decision will be made in November as to which riders will receive the $30,000 International Developing Rider Grant and the $10,000 National Developing Rider Grant, which will be presented at the 2017 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention in Long Beach, California in December.

All FEI competitors at The Event at Rebecca Farm are invited to take part in the interview process for the grants at the event. Please speak to the Rebecca Farm secretary at the venue to be placed on the schedule.

These generous grants are made possible by Jerome Broussard and his family in memory of the indomitable Rebecca Broussard, whose greatest wish was to help riders attain their dream of representing the U.S. at the Olympics, World and Pan American Games.
