Trainer Certification Grants for Young Professionals

Young Professionals are leading the way in demonstrating their commitment to elevating the  level of horsemanship within our industry and are providing a leg-up for their peers and colleagues in the process. USHJA recognizes the need to support these horsemen and horsewomen that are shaping the future of our sport.


The development of a new Trainer Certification grant program for Young Professionals will annually award up to ten $300 grants to assist interested young professionals between the ages of 21 and 35, and who seek certification, but may require assistance with the cost of certification.


The grants will be offered initially in 2014 and will be managed and fulfilled by the USHJA Foundation, with the support of the Young Professionals Committee.


Invest in your sport, support its future, and elevate the level horsemanship our industry enjoys. Click here to support the Young Professionals in their cause by providing your tax-deductible donation today.
