The USEA Foundation’s Rebecca Broussard International Developing Riders Committee has announced the recipients of the 2018 Travel Grants for The Event at Rebecca Farm, which will take place July 18-22 in Kalispell, Montana.

The Travel Grants are awarded annually to multiple riders competing in the CCI3* or CIC3* who “display the potential qualities of an international rider” and are designed to offset the cost of travel expenses to the event.

Each year three types of Rebecca Broussard International Developing Grants are awarded. In addition to the Travel Grants, the committee also awards a $10,000 National Developing Rider Grant, affectionally called the “Little Becky,” and a $30,000 International Developing Rider Grant known as the “Big Becky.”

Prior to the start of the Event at Rebecca Farm, recipients of the Travel Grants will participate in interviews with the committee, which will be used in selecting the recipients of the International Developing Rider Grant and the National Developing Rider Grant. Both grants will be presented at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention on December 5-9, 2018 in New Orleans.

All of the Travel Grant recipients and any FEI competitor at The Event at Rebecca Farm are invited to take part in the interview process at the event.

The grants are made available by Jerome Broussard and his family in memory of his wife Rebecca, whose greatest wish was to help riders attain their dream of competing on a U.S. Eventing Team at the Olympic, World and Pan American Games.

Congratulations to all the riders who have worked so hard to prepare for the competition at The Event at Rebecca Farm. Travel safely!
