At HorseVibes we understand firsthand that at every level, equestrian sports are costly – in both time and money.
The Delivering Dreams Scholarship has been established to support equestrians who have talent, dedication and passion, but require assistance to pursue their goals and reach the next level. It is open to any age or skill level.
The Delivering Dreams scholarship will be awarded quarterly in February, April, July and October of each year, to a deserving recipient in order to help them gain the education and skills they require to progress in their chosen discipline.
One scholarship will be awarded quarterly to a deserving recipient so they may gain the education and skills required to progress in their chosen discipline. An announcement and profile on the worthy recipient will be published in HorseVibes magazine and on social media.
Closing dates for entries are:
15th September, 2019 (announced in November 2019 edition)
15th December, 2019 (announced in February 2020 edition)
15th March, 2020 (announced in May 2020 edition
