The Dressage Foundation Awards Continuing Education Grants To Seven Dressage Instructors

RELEASE: August 21, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: The Dressage Foundation

The Dressage Foundation's Continuing Education for Dressage Instructors Fund, established by Maryal Barnett, has awarded grants to seven individuals to attend the United States Dressage Federation's Instructor Certification Program. 

Erin Sweeney (Gordonsville, VA), Bonnie Walker (San Diego, CA), Susan Springsteen (Uwchland, PA), Marilyn Rickman (Sonora, CA), Wendy Rhea (Wilton, CA), Tiffany Bragdell (Colora, MD), and Emme Johnston (Snow Camp, NC) each received a $1,000 grant to further their education as instructors.

“It is exciting to see that a growing number of dressage instructors are interested in continuing their education through USDF's Instructor Certification Program, as evidenced by the increase in applications we receive each year," said Jenny Johnson, TDF's Administrative Director.  "The Selection Committee appreciates that these instructors want to learn more in order to help their students.”

Instructors attending any portion of the Instructor Certification Program, including the workshops, pre-certification, and testing, can use individual grants through this Fund.  Individual grants are awarded twice per year and the next deadline for applications is February 1, 2014.

Additionally, five $1,000 grants are available to GMOs that are organizing an instructor education event.  The funds can be used to offset some of the expenses involved in conducting a USDF Instructor Certification Program, or to organize a general educational event for area instructors.  These applications must be received at least 90 days prior to the event.

For more information about the Continuing Education for Dressage Instructors Fund or The Dressage Foundation, please contact Jenny Johnson at (402) 434-8585 or visit www.dressagefoundation.org.
