USHJA Foundation Making Dreams Come True

Since 2011, the USHJA Foundation has been making dreams come true for riders at all levels by offering custom-designed opportunities in the hunter/jumper sport to USHJA members who face significant adversity, such as mental, physical, or emotional challenges; limited financial resources; or other hardships. 

This year, three young riders shared with us their struggles and their ideal equestrian experience through the Making a Dream grant application. With the generosity of our donors and support of our volunteers, the Foundation was able to make their dreams come true.
