Christine is a United States Pony Club A Graduate (traditional) and teaches mounted lessons at several Pony Clubs in her area. She enjoys coaching at Pony Club rallies and has coached teams that qualified for the USPC West Coast Championships. She is also a USDF Certified Instructor and bronze medalist. Christine recently completed Part 1 of the USDF ‘L’ Education Program and will use her grant funding to attend Part 2.
“Thank you to TDF for selecting me as the recipient of the Trip Harting Fund! This means so much to me and I am eager to put the funds towards Part 2 of the USDF ‘L’ Program. Growing up as a member of the United States Pony Club has largely shaped who I am today, and I am thrilled that there are grants such as this one to recognize the hard work and dedication that is required to become an upper-level Pony Clubber,” said Christine.
Trip Harting’s friends and colleagues established this Fund at The Dressage Foundation when he passed away in August 2008. The purpose of the Fund is to provide financial assistance for a Pony Club rider to attend an educational event of his or her choice. Applicants must be current or graduate Pony Club members with preference given to those with a B or A certification. Applications are due on March 25th of each year.
