The $25,000 Anne Ramsay grants for U.S.-bred horses can now be used for training and competition in Wellington, Florida and not restricted to Europe as previously required.

The Dressage Foundation that administers the grants for U.S.-bred horses ridden by Americans said Monday the change was made because of the number of CDI competitions in Wellington and that Wellington has become a destination for top international trainers and competitors.

Purpose of the grant has been to support horse and rider combinations competing successfully at Prix St. Georges or higher and demonstrate ability to move to top sport.

The Global Dressage Ferstival in Wellington is made up of seven CDIs–four World Cup events, CDI5* and CDI4* competitions and CDIO3* Nations Cup over three months in winter. The circuit attracts competitors from more than 30 nations and many of the world’s leading trainers.

Deadline for applications for the next grant is Oct. 25. Information is available here.
