We are pleased to continue a tradition started by Gail Thompson when she ran Swift Creek School of Equitation. Rebecca was one of her very dedicated and hard-working  students. Tragically, Rebecca passed away from a heart disorder at the age of 15. To honor her memory, Gail, together with Rebecca’s mother, began awarding scholarships to deserving students to help them continue their riding education.  Today we are offering an annual educational scholarship to a member of CVSJA between the ages of 15 and 21.


Each year members interested in receiving the scholarship must fill out an application. Applications will be reviewed and voted on by the board and scholarships will be awarded based on merit and fundraising success of the organization each year.
