Training4Teaching Ongoing Education Scholarship
In 2019 Lendon Gray and Dressage4Kids™ (D4K) began a special program for instructors: Training4Teaching (T4T). The mission of the Training4Teaching Program is to provide education for dressage instructors to become the best teachers they can be: that they continue, throughout their careers, to gain knowledge of riding theory, increase their teaching skills, learn new useful training exercises, and improve their overall horsemanship.
Starting in 2023, the D4K Training4Teaching Program is offering a scholarship of up to $500 to enable professionals to take a day or two from their busy lives to audit the teaching of an instructor they don’t normally observe or with whom they do not usually work (observation should include a minimum of 6 lessons).
The scholarship is intended to help cover expenses incurred as well as income lost by being away for the day(s) of education. Scholarship recipient(s) will be required to write a thorough report within four weeks to share with other instructors sharing what they gained from their day. Applicants who receive scholarships will receive their scholarship funds immediately upon submission of their complete scholarship report.
Established instructors of all ages and levels of experience are welcome to apply. Applicants must have a concrete plan prior to applying. The number of scholarships will depend on the funding available.
To be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must have participated in or audited at least one Dressage4Kids program or event.
The scholarship selection committee will review all applications promptly.
Whether or not you receive a scholarship, Dressage4Kids would be happy to share a notice with your clients about the importance of your own ongoing education.
