Amy Tryon Young Rider Grant Application Deadline October 8th

Posted Fri, 09/22/2017 - 11:35am

The Amy Tryon Young Rider Grant was created in memory of one of our top international riders. Amy Tryon was an icon in our sport. Through her determination and grit, Amy made her way from Northwestern Washington to two Olympics.  She was a dedicated, hardworking, and talented rider who started in Pony Club, participated in USEA’s Young Riders program, and eventually won an Olympic medal.  Amy overcame financial constraints, geographical distance, fulltime employment, and many other roadblocks to accomplish what most people only dream about.

The USEA Foundation established the Amy Tryon Young Rider Grant with the contributions from Amy’s friends and family. This fund was created to provide direct financial assistance to aspiring event riders participating in the USEA Young Rider programs and who have aspirations of achieving the highest levels of international Eventing.  The goal of the Grant is to provide riders with limited financial resources the support they require to prepare and to compete at international three-day events.  Riders must display an outstanding work ethic and the tenacity exemplified by Amy Tryon, as well as the potential to achieve a high level of international competition.  Assistance is considered for coaching, specialized training, entry fees, living costs for horse and rider, and/or travel

The 2017 Amy Tryon Fund Grant is designed to assist riders who require financial assistance to pursue their goal of training for and/or competing in an international event.  The Grant is available to riders through the year of their 21st birthday.  Riders who have represented the United States on a senior international team are ineligible.

The application must be emailed to your Area Young Rider Coordinator by October 8th.
