Helping riders and event organizers pay for their training and competition expenses

The American Horse Trials Foundation is a non-profit corporation established to assist Three Day Event Riders and Organizers in raising tax deductible financial support for national and international competition.  Eventing is one of three Olympic Equestrian sports, with its origins in cavalry training – combining the very diverse disciplines of dressage, cross-country riding and show jumping.


Riders who are bona fide national or international level competitors are eligible to apply for grants from the American Horse Trials Foundation to further their preparation for Olympic or World Championship competition.  The American Horse Trials Foundation expanded its program to include grants for USEA recognized Events.  Additionally, the program includes grants for qualified Young Riders and Riders competing in the Show Jumping, Dressage, Endurance and Driving disciplines.

The Foundation has enabled athletes with limited financial resources to train and compete at the national and international levels.  At this time our beneficiaries include many of the top Eventers in the country including most of the team members and individual competitors at the Olympic games, World Equestrian Games and Pan Am Games since the late 1980’s.  The Foundation has also enabled Event Organizers to build, maintain and upgrade their courses.
