TDF - YOUR SOURCE FOR SUPPORT
When Lowell Boomer founded The Dressage Foundation (TDF) in Lincoln in 1989, he envisioned providing much-needed financial support for the education of dressage riders.
Since that time, thousands of dressage enthusiasts have taken part in Foundation-funded educational events. Grants are awarded to non-profit equestrian groups to host clinics and camps, funding is awarded to individuals to pursue training opportunities, and Foundation programs promote our sport to equestrians and non-equestrians alike.
Donors to The Dressage Foundation help improve and support dressage by providing funding for the education of judges, instructors, breeders, youth, adult amateurs, and high performance riders. When you make a charitable contribution to TDF, you're investing in your dressage community!
"Because of TDF's support, I was able to have a wonderful and exciting time of intensive training away from home, and this opportunity greatly increased my ability to teach my students more effectively. Many thanks to TDF for making the Major Lindgren Scholarship available and for giving me this fabulous opportunity." - Jami Kment (Nebraska), Recipient of a Major Anders Lindgren Scholarship for Dressage Instructors
"Since I began riding horses, I have been dedicated to learning everything I can about the art and science of dressage, and am thoroughly enjoying the experience of bringing along my own young horse. I continue to aim for the FEI levels, with correct training and no shortcuts. I know that my horse and I will both benefit from an intense block of training time in preparation for the coming levels." - Melissa Ward (Nebraska), Recipient of a Gifted Fund Grant for Adult Amateurs
In addition to designated Grant Funds, TDF has several programs operated through the Lincoln office. TDF is committed to Lincoln as its home, and uses local providers to further support the Lincoln community.
