The U.S. Equestrian Federation announced that USEF Dressage High Performance Pre-Games Training and Competition Grants have been awarded to two horse-and-rider combinations.
These grants were awarded based on the riders’ detailed plans for training and competition in Europe in preparation for the selection trial for the U.S. Dressage Team Short List and the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (France), as well as their prospect of contributing to a team and/or individual medal at the Games.
Grant recipients include:
Catherine Haddad-Staller of Wellington, Fla., and her own Mane Stream Hotmail, a 12-year-old Oldenburg gelding (Michellino—Rederna, Havel).
Arlene “Tuny” Page of Wellington, Fla., and her own Alina, a 16-year-old Danish Warmblood mare (Michellino—Alberte Lindebjerg, Diamant).
