Brittany Fraser-Beaulieu has been awarded the 2021 Brosda Olympic Bursary of $10,000 (US$7,900), the third time the award has gone to Canada’s top rider on the world rankings, Equestrian Canada and the Brosda family announced Wednesday.
Brittany, in Wellington, Florida, campaigning on All In for a place on Caada’s Tokyo Olympic team, received the award in 2018 and 2020.
The Élisabeth Brosda Memorial Fund was created to honor the late daughter of Marie-France Maisonneuve.
“Time and time again, Brittany has proved that she shares Élisabeth’s passion for excellence–both inside and outside of the ring–and dedication to being part of the Canadian Dressage Team. With continued support from EC and the Horsepower Foundation, we are pleased to award Brittany with this year’s bursary as the 2020 and 2024 Olympic Games draw near.”
“I am once again honored to have received the Brosda Bursary in memory of Élisabeth,” Brittany said. “Élisabeth was an enthusiastic rider whom I had the privilege of coaching. She had dreams of also competing at the Olympics. This bursary will go towards training and competition costs leading up to the 2020 Olympics. I am very grateful to be back in the competition ring with All In during these unprecedented times.”
