    Default Can we learn something from USA Wrestling

    They have established a Living the Dream Medal fund, that awards prizes to encourage wrestlers to stay in the sport.

    It must be working, USA Olympics netted 4 medals and 2 of them gold in London?

    Could we do something like this to keep American horses here in the USA, to help fund more training, more competition?

    What could all of us that are members of the USEF/USDF/USHJA do to help our Olympic level riders?

    Personally I don't want my dues going to fund the Olympic Games/WEG/etc. I think the association money should be going to develop the grass roots of the organizations. If you want to shoot for the international level you should learn to market yourself and business to backers and sponsors.
