USEF Youth Sportsman’s Award Grant Awarded to Operation Wild Horse

WDAA is thrilled to announce that the USEF Youth Sportsman’s Grant of $1500 has been awarded to Operation Wild Horse-Veterans R&R and their wonderful youth outreach program! The purpose of the program is to involve children of Veterans & Active Duty Military in learning horsemanship and riding skills utilizing Western Dressage as the platform. Additionally, they work with Active Duty Military that are under the age of 22 and also include “Poolee’s” (individuals under the age of 22 who are going into the Military). This program concentrates on the therapeutic attributes of horse riding, ground work and the camaraderie that accompanies the equestrian community atmosphere.
This no fee annual program has been in place since February of 2017 but participants were limited due to the shortage of equipment. The grant will allow OWH to implement the curriculum on a larger scale as proper equipment can be purchased to provide the safest atmosphere possible for participants ages 2-21.
CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Operation Wild Horse, a program offered by Veterans R&R
