1. Legacy of Legends Scholarship

Carolyn Hunt (wife of Ray Hunt) has formed a foundation whose purpose is to educate the next generation in the horsemanship principles used by her husband and Tom Dorrance. The Legacy of Legends Foundation is offering "internship" scholarships to qualified students. These scholarships give the recipients the opportunity to spend 3 months in an internship setting with a Horseman, Clinician, and/or Trainer that emulates the philosophy of Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt; to make a better deal for the horse. Previous scholarship recipients have worked with Buck Brannaman, Martin Black, Ty Van Norman, and Wade Black.

The 3-month internship is free to the recipients, and is a tremendous opportunity for a young person interested in the equine industry to learn from the top clinicians. Please share the link to the Legacy of Legends website ( and the scholarship application ( with your students. The application deadline is Dec. 31st, 2012.

(If you are curious about my involvement, we, at Montana State, are fortunate to have Buck Brannaman as an Honorary Doctorate recipient from our department, and his daughter, Reata, is currently a freshman here. But, this scholarship opportunity is too valuable not to share with others in the equine academic field.)
