USHJA Emerging Athletes Program Alumni Receive Grant to Attend Bernie Traurig's East Coast Workshop at Coker Farm
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Lexington, KY----May 6, 2016----Bernie Traurig and EquestrianCoach.com and the USHJA Foundation awarded grants to Philip Williamson, Denver, CO, and Marion Osier, St. Paul, MN, respectively so they may attend the May 6-8 Bernie Traurig East Coast Workshop, presented by EquestrianCoach.com and hosted by Judy Richter's Coker Farm in Bedford, NY. These two riders were selected for grants because they were National Finalists in the USHJA Emerging Athletes Program, presented by Dover Saddlery.

In recognition of the educational merits of the USHJA Emerging Athletes Program, Bernie Traurig and EquestrianCoach.com offered a grant to one EAP National Training Session alumnus. Alumni had to complete a detailed application to be considered for selection including detailing long and short term career goals and accomplishments. The Emerging Athletes Program Committee awarded the Workshop spot to 2014 EAP National Finalist Philip Williamson.

Additionally, the USHJA Foundation awarded 2009 EAP National Finalist and applicant Marion "Molly" Osier a $1,200 grant to cover the cost of the clinic.

Beginning today, the three-day workshop will be an extraordinary experience of riding, training and teaching techniques for riders, auditors and professionals applying for the Trainer Certification Program. There is also an optional bonus Natural Jump Schooling day on May 9 available to clinic attendees. The clinic is available to auditors and for USHJA Trainer Certification Program credit.
