The USA Equestrian Trust has awarded $55,000 in grants to help fund four projects by equine nonprofits. The awards come on top of nearly $210,000 awarded in May for 10 projects by equine nonprofits.

Since the inception of the trust’s grants program, the organization has awarded more than $1.5 million in grants.

The projects funded as part of the grants period, which ended in October, were:

  • American Saddlebred Horse Association received $10,000 to help redesign its database of registered Saddlebreds, members, competitions, and show results, as well as upgrade its website.
  • Arabian Horse Association received $15,000 to assist in revamping its website to help the organization market and promote the breed.
  • Sacramento Area Hunter Jumper Association received $5,000 to offer a free training clinic for its members, who are entry-level exhibitors and low-budget owners. The money for this grant was allocated from funding reserved for hunter/jumper activities in California and Nevada.
  • United States Equestrian Federation Equine Health Research Fund received $25,000 for a research project at the University of California, Davis, that aims to identify novel drug therapies for the treatment of nervous system disease equine protozoal myeloencephalopathy.

The trust’s next application period will begin early in 2014. Equine nonprofits wishing to make a request for funding during that application period will be required to fill out the online application form at
