Friday, March 4, 2011
Katy Barglow, Walnut Creek, California, has been a professional instructor for two years and taught as a Pony Club volunteer for ten years. She said, “I am thrilled to have the support of The Dressage Foundation to attend the USDF Instructor Certification Program. The workshops thus far have honed my teaching skills and given me new tools for communicating with horses and riders. I know my teaching, training, riding, and lunging skills will continue to improve as a result of this program.”
Crystal Forsell is from San Lorenzo, California, and has been a dressage instructor for eight years. "Being a Participating Instructor in the USDF Instructor Certification workshops is an investment into my career and my dressage future,” said Crystal. “I have already participated in two of the three workshops offered and found it to be an invaluable experience. I am very grateful to receive this assistance from The Dressage Foundation to fund my participation in the USDF Instructor Certification workshops. This will not only cover the registration fees, but stabling and required reading materials as well."
Individual grants range from $500 to $1,500 each and are awarded twice per year. Application deadlines are February 1st and July 1st for individual grants only. GMOs may still apply for financial assistance of up to $1,000 for instructor clinics, and those applications are due at least 90 days prior to the event.
