Since 2011, the USHJA Foundation has partnered with several USHJA
Prizes offered at the fourth horse show/clinic, supported by the 2014 Zone 12 General Education Gran
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.
Last year, Jill Cornforth was the recipient of the general education grant, which helped her offset costs associated with hosting a series of four unrated one-day horse shows paired with one-day clinics in Fairbanks with the following judges and clinicians: Jaimie Thurman, Jaime Freeman, Bill Turner and Dana Eaton. Rebecca Carrington acted as assistant manager for these events, which offered great educational opportunities to a variety of Alaskan equestrians.
This year, the Zone 12 Hunter Jumper Committee will offer one Trainer Certification Program Clinic travel grant, two grants for young riders who has been accepted to attend a USHJA Emerging Athletes Program Regional Training Session and at least one general education grant up to $1,000.
