The Dressage Foundation (TDF) is honored to announce the new Jane Savoie Fund for Adult Amateurs, established by Jane’s family and friends in memory of her lifelong love of horses and career as a trainer, teacher, author, and motivational speaker.

Jane was known around the world for her dedication to dressage, passionate help of amateur riders and developing happy horses. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded from the Jane Savoie Fund to adult amateur riders of any age, who are training any breed of horse at 4th Level or Prix St. Georges, and who reflect Jane’s ethos of developing each horse to its potential.

Jane Will Be Remembered - Forever

These grants are intended to represent Jane’s belief that financial help of this magnitude will enable the recipients to achieve knowledge and training that would otherwise be financially out-of-reach.

Beth Baumert, TDF’s President and CEO said, “I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know and love Jane Savoie. Maybe it’s been forever. And that’s how long we want Jane to be remembered—forever.

Jane gave countless riders permission to be great, and she helped them get wherever they were headed. She helped backyard riders and she helped Olympians—each with the same degree of commitment. Now is the time for us to be committed to Jane.
