About FEA

Horsemanship

Riders & Pros

Supporters/Donors

 The idea of creating a foundation for equestrian athletes started many years ago, as a conclusion that one of the biggest obstacles riders, horses and professionals in the industry encounter is money, or the lack thereof.

Everyone will agree that good horsemanship is important. But then, why is it that so many young, and even experienced riders, do not give it the priority it deserves?

While FEA supports equestrian careers at all levels, it is no secret that a rider's career can suddenly come to a halt for reasons often out of his/her control: lack of funds, location, wrong horse, injury, etc.  -  FEA may be able to help the lucky ones, but also the not-so-lucky ones!

What rider never dreamed of a career that does not depend on where the money will come from next? Sponsorships & financial supporters are key to most successful equestrian careers, and FEA has a system that makes every dollar generate long term benefits.

 Young vs pro jumper

The new way to GET IT DONE!

Over the years, riders, parents, trainers, and pretty much everyone involved at any level with horses have come to the realization that there are three types of riders: the ones who ride for fun, the competitive riders and those in between. And within each group, there are the ones who really care about horses and have good horsemanship, while others use horses as a "tool", a mean to get their fix (either for pleasure or to compete & win) without caring much for them.  At FEA we focus on the partnership between horses and humans - proper horsemanship is not only the starting point, it is also the end result. Individuals & entities around the world share this belief, but FEA brings it to a whole new level by adapting financial strategies that can make a huge difference for many riders and horses.  View the full introduction to FEA in a PDF format, or view the Summary.


We are building a special database where riders & equine professionals will be able to tell us what they need, and where mentors, donors, sponsors and other contributors will be able to tell us what they will make available. Then we will simply match the requests with what is made available.  Click here if you want us to let you know when ready!

FALL 2015
FEA was represented at all major hunter-jumper-EQ horse shows this fall. The goal was to introduce FEA to potential beneficiaries (riders & trainers), sponsors and supporters.

SUMMER 2015
FEA's formal Focus Quadrant was released to help the general public better understand the scope of work the Foundation is involved with. View the updated Quadrant. Also, expansion efforts were initiated to create the Canadian and Asian Chapters of the Foundation. While all Chapters support each other as much as possible, from a financial point of view each National FEA Chapter runs independently, i.e. funding remains in the country of origin.


SPRING 2015
FEA met with key individuals in the equestrian community to ensure its mission is in line with present & future needs, with the best possible team members. It led to the creation of the FEA & TMH Creative Team. Thank you so much to all!
TMH & FEA Creative Team
 

FEA made its first official donations while supporting an event at the Icon Sporthorses location in Friendsville, TN - owned and operated by Rhonda Goble.  FEA made a financial donation to the hosting barn and, at the same event, Julie Gravelle made a special donation to Melanie Taylor Smith: the original of the drawing of Calypso, Melanie's beloved horse - together they won numerous prestigious events, including a gold medal at the 1984 Olympic Games.
