The United States Equestrian Team Foundation mission is to provide the necessary resources to make equestrian competitive excellence possible, now and in the future. The Foundation supports the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s Elite and developing International High Performance athletes and horses in partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation. The Foundation is funded through tax-deductible contributions and does not receive any direct or indirect government subsidy.

High Performance programs are developed in the seven international equestrian disciplines of dressage, eventing, jumping, driving, endurance, reining, para equestrian and vaulting. These programs train and support our top athletes and horses to compete at the Olympics, World Championships, Pan American Games and other top international competitions. The High Performance programs provide support for our world-class coaches, international competition and training grants, national training sessions and talent search programs to identify future elite equestrian athletes. In addition, dressage athletes with disabilities participate in Paralympic and World Championship competition.

The United States Equestrian Team Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, EIN 22-1668879. The Foundation adheres to good governance and the best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.
