Applications for the 2019 Worth the Trust Educational and Sports Psychology Scholarships are due in two weeks on Monday, October 1. Since 2000, the Worth the Trust Scholarships for young adults and adult amateurs have provided financial assistance for the purpose of pursuing continued education in eventing, thanks to the generosity of Joan Iversen Goswell. The funds may be used for training opportunities such as clinics, working student positions, and private or group instruction, or to learn from an official, course designer, technical delegate, judge, veterinarian, or organizer.

Eventing is addictive, and I have resigned myself to the fact that I can’t kick the habit. The reason for my addiction is my horse. Her name is Rosie Red, and as her classy name may depict, she is an off-track Thoroughbred. I bought her as a four-year-old from Suffolk Downs in Boston. A risky choice, but I guess we eventers like risk. Rosie is eleven now and we are still learning the art of eventing together.

In the world of sports there is a term referred to as second wind, defined as the ability of an athlete to summon strength and perseverance following exhaustion and fatigue. In the world of eventing, and any other equestrian sport for that matter, we would be hard pressed to apply a more fitting word to a community of such dedicated athletes. These two principles, second wind and community, became a guiding theme throughout the year and in my decision to re-apply for the 2013 Worth The Trust Scholarship.

My name is Carla VanEffen. I am 45 years old, wife and mother of two, and I am applying for the Worth The Trust Adult Amateur Scholarship. The definition of trust is “assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.” This describes the relationship I have with my 8-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Remastered or “Remy,” my equine partner for the last two years. This paper will detail the four reasons that I think Remy and I are excellent candidates for this scholarship.

Eventing is a challenging sport for both the body and the mind, and the three different phases of competition test the rider’s intelligence, bravery, and skill. No matter what level a rider competes at, they may experience obstacles such as loss of confidence, fear of injury, or the inability to focus or to perform under pressure, and often riders are unaware of the bad habits that stand in the way of their path to success.
