Brittany Fraser-Beaulieu with All In, the top ranked combination for Canada’s team for the Tokyo Olympics, has been awarded the C$10,000 Brosda Olympic Bursary.
Equestrian Canada announced the award Wednesday, citing the record of Brittany and the 15-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding as the highest placed Canadian combination on world dressage rankings.
Returning to Wellington, Florida for the Adequan Global Dressage Festival after taking off most of 2019 for the birth of her first child, Brittany and All In have posted their personal best scores in their campaign to represent Canada in Tokyo.
The fund was established in the name of Élisabeth Brosda who was killed in a car accident. It is supported by Equestrian Canada and the Horsepower Foundation to help dressage athletes who share her goal of representing Canada at the 2020 and/or 2024 Olympics.
The Bursary High Performance Advisory Group selected Brittany for detailing her plans to use the funds for training and horse care maintenance in preparation for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. She had received the inaugural Brosda Bursary in 2018 when with All In was the highest placed Canadian at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon.
“This Bursary means a great deal to me because I did teach Elisabeth a number of times before her tragic accident,” said Brittany. “I plan to use the bursary to help with my training expenses leading up to the Olympic Games. The Olympics have been a childhood dream of mine, so my focus for the next few months will be getting the scores I need to be on the Canadian team. All In and I are off to a great start and excited to see what he future has in store.”
