(Please note: If you are selected as the winner in your chosen discipline, you must be able to arrange your own transport to / from the venue of the trainer listed above!)
Following your progress...
As part of the bursary programme, we will be following your progress so you'll become stars of our Blog, Facebook and Instagram channels.
You will be required to share monthly blogs (and / or) vlogs and photos, which we'll promote to our followers. You can see what the 2020 winners got up to on the blog here.
The bursary is open to everyone - whatever your level of training / competition - so don't be afraid to get involved!
Now for the important bit... How to enter!
All applications for the bursary must include a video application telling us why you think you deserve a winning spot. So it's time to get creative and tell us about why we should pick you and your horse(s) / pony, and the journey you'll take us on with you!
You'll find links to the application videos for our 2020 winners below if you need some inspiration!
