Bedford, NY – Dressage4Kids and Anne Baber Wallis are pleased to announce that Emily Gill is the first ever recipient of the new D4K Christian Kennedy Young Adult Scholarship. Anne thanks the many generous donors who have helped make this scholarship a reality.

This scholarship is awarded in memory of Christian Kennedy.  As a young rider, Christian was known for his patience, his kindness, his horsemanship, and his joie de vivre.  The D4K Christian Kennedy Young Adult Scholarship is awarded to promote, train, and inspire young riders through a special winter training grant.  As the recipient of the award, Emily will work under the training leadership of Oded Shimoni at OS Dressage in Wellington, Florida. Kim Van Kampen and Hampton Green Farm are generously offering stabling. 

Writes Michele Shaffer, “Emily is a person who motivates, helps others and wants to leave situations better then when she started.”
