The Fourth Annual 2018 Michael Nyuis Scholarship is accepting applications through January 1, 2018Find all forms and information on the West Palms website by clicking here. Scholarships recipients will be announced on February 15, 2018.The Michael Nyuis Scholarship was created through West Palms Events to offer recipients the resources to further their training and equestrian education through horse showing. It is named in the memory of West Palms Events’ Dale Harvey’s nephew, who always helped others whenever he had the chance.

The scholarship gives five young riders the opportunity to attend a variety of high-level equestrian competitions throughout the show season. The West Palms Events’ selection committee based on their commitment to, love for and dedication to the sport will choose these riders. These scholarships are intended for riders who have the passion and drive to compete, but lack the financial resources to do so consistently throughout the year.

The Michael Nyuis Scholarship offers $6,500 dollars in horse show credit, to be used at all West Palms Events’ horse shows, except Del Mar National.

Five Scholarship opportunities are offered in 2018: One to a Canadian rider; three to United States riders and one to the winner of the Onondarka Medal Finals. Congratulations to Avery Glynn, who was victorious in the 2017 Onondarka Medal Finals at the Del Mar International Horse Show, where she earned her 2018 Michael Nyuis Scholarship.
