Lincoln, NE – June 12, 2017 – Margaret Duprey of Cherry Knoll Farm and the Dressage Foundation is pleased to announce that the “Dollars for Dreamers” supported by Duprey has reached the halfway point of their fundraising goal. For every dollar raised, Duprey will match the amount up to $10,000 to support the TDF’s Young Rider International Dream Program.
The “Dollars for Dreamers” campaign will fund four top young American riders’ trips to Europe for a week-long introduction to the elite standards of international dressage through observing and meeting with top dressage riders, instructors, and judges from around the world.
For lifelong horsewoman and Grand Prix dressage rider, Margaret Duprey, supporting charitable programs that align with her passion for education inspired her to become involved with “Dollars for Dreamers.”
“It is very important to support programs that are educational for young adults because they are the ones who are the future of the sport and the community,” Duprey said. “These aspiring professional riders are the ones who are going to follow in our footsteps.”
Duprey owns and operates Cherry Knoll Farm, with locations in Wellington, Florida, and West Grove, Pennsylvania. In addition to her personal riding endeavors, her passion for horses and the people involved with them is unparalleled. Duprey is an active board member for numerous organizations in the equine realm and supports philanthropies with education initiatives, including the Dressage Foundation, Brooke USA and JustWorld International.
“The Young Rider International Dream Program is a great educational experience that can motivate young riders to really dig deeper into their learning experiences by giving them the opportunity to study the international dressage industry,” Duprey explained.
The Dressage Foundation is currently accepting monetary donations on their website and they launched an online auction from June 1 to July 1 that will benefit the international trip. The auction offers a wide range of donated services, such as clinics, judging sessions and braiding, as well as equestrian products that you can purchase to support the “Dollars for Dreamers” campaign.
“We are so grateful for Margaret’s generosity!” said Jenny Johnson, The Dressage Foundation’s Executive Director. “Her matching donation has already inspired so many other people to give, bringing the dressage community together to support a program that will have a lasting impact on U.S. dressage.”
