LINCOLN, Nebraska, Sept. 6–A new fund to help support breeding program education in the United States has been created by The Dressage Foundation with funding by Elysium Farm of Harvard, Massachussetts.
The fund will begin in 2012 providing grants of up to $1,000 for programs in the U.S. and $5,000 for overseas.
“I wanted to do something to support breeders in the United States ever since I found my ‘perfect’ horse, a locally-bred Dutch Warmblood,” said Abbey Henderson, of Elysium Farm. “From that experience, among others, I gained a better understanding of the challenges facing breeders in this country. I learned how serious many of them are about improving the quality of U.S.-bred horses.”
Completed applications for grants from the Elyisum Farm Fund for U.S. Breeder Excellence are due by May 1, 2012.
