        USHJA Foundation to Offer More Scholarships and Grants in 2013

        Since 2011 the USHJA Foundation has partnered with several USHJA Zones to offer the Scholarship & Grants Partner Program, as a means for zones to give back to their members in the form of financial assistance towards educational needs.

        The USHJA Foundation continues to honor its pledge of contributing additional funds to help grow the cash value of each scholarship or grant that a zone bestows. During 2013, the Foundation welcomed an increased number of zone partners and increased zone donations, which in turn provides for more recipients and larger awards.

        An Investment in Our Future: Each scholarship and grant awarded by USHJA Zones is one step closer to ensuring the future of the American Hunter Jumper sport. The Foundation believes these funds:

        • Help students who choose to rise to the challenge of obtaining a college degree.
        • Move future farriers and veterinary technicians a step closer to realizing their career dreams.
        • Aid professionals in becoming certified trainers.
        • Encourage young equestrians to reach higher levels of riding accomplishments via sources such as the Emerging Athletes Program’s curriculum with elite clinicians.

        This year Zone 1 Hunter and Jumper Committees joined forces with the USHJA Foundation to offer two $2,250 College Scholarships. To learn more about the Zone 1 educational offerings please contact Christina Murphy at (859) 225-6714.

        The 2012 Zone Elections have closed and the individuals listed below have been elected by the eligible voting members to represent your zone.

        Next steps: The three largest Affiliate Organizations, within the zone and registered with the USHJA, have the opportunity to recommend one appointee who has designated hunter to the Hunter Committee and one appointee who has designated jumper to the Jumper Committee. At a later date additional appointments will be made to ensure a balanced committee on the basis of geography and constituency representation.

        The current committees will continue overseeing zone business until November 2012, at which the newly elected committees will be seated. 2012 Zone Election Timeline

    • USHJA Foundation to Offer More Scholarships and Grants in 2012
      • In 2011, the USHJA Foundation partnered with several USHJA Zones to develop the Scholarship and Grants Partner Program. Designed to benefit the USHJA members with a cohesive and easy to use system, the program became an instant success and provided zones the opportunity to give back to their members in the form of financial assistance towards educational needs.

        The USHJA Foundation continues to honor its pledge of contributing additional funds to supplement the various educational awards, which helps to grow the cash value of each scholarship or grant that a zone bestows. 2012 has welcomed an increased number of zones now partnering with the Foundation and an increase in the zone donations. This growth is a win-win to everyone. Zones are able to provide for more recipients and the awards can be more sizable.

        An Investment in Our Future

        Each scholarship and grant awarded by USHJA Zones is one step closer to ensuring the future of the American hunter jumper sport. These funds can:

        • Help students who choose to rise to the challenge of obtaining a college degree- perhaps becoming the first in their family to attend college.
        • Move future farriers and veterinary technicians a step closer to realizing their career dreams.
        • Aid professionals in becoming certified trainers who might not otherwise be able to afford the expense of educational programs.
        • Encourage young equestrians to reach higher levels of riding accomplishments via sources such as the Emerging Athletes Program’s curriculum with elite clinicians.

      • IHSA

        Since 2008, the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association has contributed a portion of every regular-season entry fee from the Hunter Seat Novice Flat and Novice Western classes to Ride For The Ribbon, to support breast cancer awareness. According to IHSA Board of Directors member Naomi Blumenthal, for the 2010-11 season the IHSA raised $3,500.

        Ride For The Ribbon, the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research, was launched in 1998 in memory of Spielman, who survived two bouts with breast cancer before losing her battle in November 2009.

        Sharon van der Walde, with Ride For The Ribbon, said the original goal of $1 million has been amply surpassed: Support for the cause has raised $6 million.

        "Ride For The Ribbon came about because of the friendship Stefanie and I shared and the fact that our daughters rode," said van der Walde. "When Naomi contacted me about wanting to help, I had no idea the impact she—and IHSA—would have! I’m overwhelmed that IHSA riders care enough to participate in Ride For The Ribbon classes."

        This season, every IHSA Novice class during the school year will again contribute toward the fund. For more information on Ride For The Ribbon, visit www.ridefortheribbon.net or call (614) 563-6301.

Sydney and Brooke started Round 1 off in spectacular fashion with 2 clear rounds, Dana Scott added only four faults and with Avery’s first round score dropped the team was in a three way tie for the gold medal after the first round of competition. In a tough second course Sydney, Dana and Avery each added only four faults to finish up the competition with a Bronze Medal. 2011 results or visit www.youngriders.org.
