Now in its third cycle, Strides for Equality Equestrians has opened its application period for the Ever So Sweet Scholarship! Applications will be accepted online here until April 15 and the recipient will be chosen by May 1 for the summer term which runs June-August at Sara Kozumplik’s Overlook Farm in Berryville, Virginia. It is made possible by Edy Rameika, Sara Kozumplik, and the USEA Foundation who have supported SEE from the very beginning. Without them this one of a kind program would not be possible!

This is an outstanding opportunity for a young person who wants to expand their riding, horsemanship, and equestrian network on their career path as professional horseperson. It is an immersive program with busy days and lots of learning. Prior recipients Helen Casteel and Sierra Lesny had ample time in the saddle with exposure to truly top class trainers. They met world class vets and farriers and learned from the best organizers and grooms in the business as well. You can follow along with past, present and future Ever So Sweet recipients on Instagram and Facebook.

This is a fully funded scholarship provided through Strides for Equality Equestrians and its partners mentioned above. It includes all expenses associated with board & training of one horse, rent for the recipient and a small stipend, transportation to Virginia and to competitions, entries, lessons, and farrier care. It is truly a unique program that gives riders a head start or a step up in their career.
