The U.S. Equestrian Federation and its High Performance Dressage Committee have awarded training grants to eight participants of the 2013 USEF Developing Dressage Program. The grants have been made possible by a generous gift from Akiko Yamazaki and Red Husky Foundation through the U.S. Equestrian Team Foundation. These grant recipients were chosen following a review of their performances in observation and training sessions this year and after a review of their training and competitions plans for next year.

USEF Developing Coach, Debbie McDonald, and USEF Developing Coach Advisors, Lendon Gray, Scott Hassler, Jeremy Steinberg and Anne Gribbons, have selected the following eight combinations to receive training grants:

Nora Batchelder of Williston, Fla., on her own Bahai

Shelly Francis of Loxahatchee, Fla., on Patricia Stempel’s Danilo

Brian Hafner of Penngrove, Calif., on his own and Dr. Rebecca Hafner’s Lombardo LHF  

Kimberly Herslow of Stockton, N.J., on Kiroli Enterprises LLC’s Rosmarin
