Jessica Jo Tate and family have established a new fund at The Dressage Foundation to provide financial assistance to dressage professionals to further their business, leadership or riding skills.

The annual grant is up to $5,000 for a dressage professional 25 years old and over, to work with a mentor as J.J. did with Charles de Kunffy.

“I have been very fortunate to have a strong supportive network of trainers, family and clients who have helped me develop as a trainer and as a person,” said J.J. “I believe that being successful in our sport requires a lot more than just good riding. My dad, Joe, has always been a huge inspiration to me for self-growth and development, and we would love to share that opportunity with others.

“We hope this grant will help people further not only their depth of relationships with their mentors, but also to further their education; whether that be through personal development and growth or better business skills.”
