To support Nova Scotian equestrians of all disciplines, NSEF has created a Long Term Equestrian Development Program whereby bursaries are awarded to athletes who best demonstrate a continuing commitment towards skill development. Up to four bursaries of $250.00 each are awarded annually to NSEF members who exemplify a commitment to personal long term equestrian athlete development.
