Funding for competition grants is only considered upon receipt of an application. Land Rover funding can be revoked at any time if a combination has a loss of current form and/or performance, or if veterinary concerns are found regarding a horse. Prior to departure, all horses will be evaluated for soundness by a USEF-approved veterinarian.
