January 7, 2016 — The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) is pleased to announce the continuation of the Eventing Frangible Technology Grant Program. Organizers of USEF-licensed eventing competitions may apply for a grant to supplement the use of frangible devices.
In June 2008, the USEF began supplying frangible pins at no cost to organizers of USEF licensed eventing competitions. Over the past few years, a number of new frangible technologies have entered the market place, prompting the USEF Eventing Technical Committee to revisit the current program. The USEF Eventing Technical Committee felt that organizers should have access to these new technologies and encourage their usage.
Organizers of USEF eventing competitions offering divisions at the Preliminary level and above, taking place during the 2016 USEF competition year, may request frangible devices by completing a Frangible Technology Grant Program Request. Allocations of frangible devices, worth up to $500, will be awarded per property. The deadline to apply for the 2016 competition season is November 1, 2016.
