NEWS FROM THE DRESSAGE FOUNDATION
W hat is your wish for dressage in our country? Do you ever think about ways that you can improve U.S. dressage—how you can help it grow and thrive? There are many aspects of our sport and all are important to its success. There are Young Riders who aspire to become professional judges or instructors, Adult Amateurs who ride early in the morning and late at night, breeders with goals to help riders by providing top-quality horses, Team USA riders who inspire us all and so many more.
The Dressage Foundation (TDF) provides an easy, convenient way for you to help the sport you love. Your monthly gift as a TDF Sustaining Partner will provide important support for grants and programs across the country. Monthly gifts start at just $10 a month and have a lasting impact. Gwen Ka’awaloa of Colorado recently received a grant from TDF’s Shannon Foundation Fund for Judges’ Licensing. She shared, “Finances can often derail a goal, but TDF’s donors provided the means to proceed through the judge’s program without the worry of financial stress. Receiving a grant provided a key piece in my journey to move forward as a judge. Thank you!”
Monthly donations can be designated to a particular grant fund or can be used to provide important support for all grants and programs. It’s easy to become a TDF Sustaining Partner. Simply visit dressagefoundation.org and click on “Support” or call Jenny Johnson, executive director, at 402-434-8585.
