The selection committee is very pleased to announce the names of the 2018 Christian Kennedy Future Stars Scholarships

They are:
Geena Martin, 25 years old from Gainesville, FL
David Botana, 15 years old from Arora, IL,
Carly Veesers, 23 years old from Powers, MI
Paige Hendrick, 11 years old from Exeter, RI.

There were 34 fantastic applicants this year and it was very hard for our Selection Committee of Charlotte Bredhall-Baker, George Williams, and Robert Dover, to determine the top 4. Each of the Scholarship recipients will receive a free month of training with me at OS Dressage in Wellington during the 2018 calendar year. Not only is this year’s age range greater, from 11 to 25; I am thrilled to have David, a Grade 1 Para Dressage rider, among our Future Stars recipients.

2017 Future Stars were:
Christian Kennedy, Sofia Schultz, Robert Lueck, and Hannah Pierucci.”
