Providing opportunities for youth from marginalized communities to stay involved in equestrian sport through financial awards and mentorship
The mission of the Optimum Youth Equestrian Scholarship is to provide opportunities for youth aged 17-27 from marginalized communities to become involved or stay involved in horse sports through financial awards and mentorship focusing on not only horsemanship and equestrian pursuits, but also career planning and education.
We believe that opportunities for riding, training, and showing are not easily attainable to individuals facing socioeconomic and accessibility hurdles as well as overt and passive discrimination based upon their race, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Together we seek to bridge this gap through the sharing of knowledge, opportunities, and solidarity.
