The Waredaca Eventing Education Foundation (WEEF) is thrilled to announce the winners of the inaugural Jimmy Wofford Legacy Fund Scholarship. Congratulations to Ateasha Baltodano of Bordentown, NJ, and to junior rider Vivian Aubel of Linthicum, MD!
· Ms. Baltodano’s (left) love for horses started at age nine through 4H programs with her quarter horse in tow. Years later, she returned to horses as her children began to explore riding — and horses are once again a family affair. Ms. Baltodano has rediscovered a love for competing, eventing, and the vibrant and supportive community around it — riding Hold My Tiara at the Beginner Novice level
· Ms. Aubel (right) will be starting at Randolph Macon College in the fall, competing on their eventing team with her horse Reef. Reef came off the track 3 years ago and has been partnered with Ms. Aubel for 2 years as they both learn eventing and deepen their connection to the sport and its community. Ms. Aubel is especially looking forward to growing and making new connections in the upcoming expert clinics as she and Reef progress at the Novice level
Ms. Baltodano and Ms. Aubel both share an impressive dedication to eventing, personal growth in the face of challenges and obstacles, focus on progressing their own competitiveness, and deep commitment to the sport through volunteerism and working with other riders. WEEF looks forward to everything they will accomplish in the months and years to come.
This inaugural Wofford Legacy Fund year has been heartening to all involved. There were numerous applications from across the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, New England, and South of the United States. Every applicant shared compelling goals and dedication to our sport — and WEEF encourages each and every rider to continue working toward their eventing goals.
