Proceeds from the auction will benefit TDF's Karen Skvarla Fund for Young Professionals, which provides grants that enable young dressage professionals to pursue a variety of training or educational opportunities. The Karen Skvarla Fund especially looks for applicants who are eager to grow and improve and who are fair and respectful to both students and horses.
"We are thankful for the generosity of Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin, who so kindly donated these special items for this auction," said Jenny Johnson, TDF Executive Director. "It is incredible to know that they support the education of dressage professionals around the world."
