The Gifted Scholarship Fund was established by Carol Lavell, and seeded from Donations received in special remembrance of her great Dressage horse, "Gifted."  Many other friends of The Dressage Foundation have added Donations and the Scholarship Fund has grown steadily over the years, and provides scholarships to enable Adult Amateurs to set aside quality time in concentrated training, with a horse they own, with a trainer of choice, away from the daily pressures of job and family.
