The Renee Isler Dressage Support Fund was originally created to provide assistance for those participating in the USDF Junior/Young Rider Clinic Series, but now it has grown into so much more. While still providing individual grants of up to $800 for the Clinic Series, the Fund also provides assistance for great educational opportunities for young riders and professionals. To submit an application, send supporting materials as outlined on The Dressage Foundation website. The Selection Committee will review all applications as they are received. Applications are due at least 30 days in advance of the event or clinic. For information on the Junior/Young Rider Clinic Series, visit here!
The Dressage Foundation (TDF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization. They have been providing financial aid and assistance to all levels of dressage enthusiasts for over 25 years now. TDF was founded in 1989 by Lowell Boomer with the intention of cultivating higher education of dressage in the United States by giving help and support for training. They provide grants for educational opportunities for judges, breeders, riders, trainers and GMOs. TDF has become a staple in the United States dressage community. They help individuals find their own pathways to success where they might not have been able to before because of limited finances and resources. The Dressage Foundation can only continue to help the community through the generosity of donors. That is why it is essential to give back to TDF so they can continue on their mission to help dressage enthusiasts of all ages and levels.

Catherine Chamberlain said, “I myself have been fortunate enough to receive help from The Dressage Foundation numerous times and credit them with being a huge factor in the opportunities and successes I have had so far. I am very grateful for all they have done for the dressage community as a whole and am always looking to give back to TDF in any way possible. Therefore, I am currently organizing an online silent auction to benefit the Dressage Foundation’s Renee Isler Dressage Support Fund.”
Still looking for items to add to the auction, Catherine Chamberlain is looking for goods or services you would be willing to donate, or if you would just like to make a monetary donation to TDF please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
