Eventing is a demanding sport both mentally and physically. The three different phases require intelligence, training and competing skills, along with a positive attitude.  At any competition level, an eventer can experience problems such as loss of confidence, fear of injury, inability to focus or to perform efficiently under pressure. Often, an individual is unaware of self-talk or habits that are counterproductive. Discussion with a qualified sports counselor can help that eventer develop the insight and desire to identify and implement more productive attitudes and behaviors.  This process can illuminate and enhance the eventer both as a person and as a rider.  The Worth the Trust Sports Counseling Scholarships have been created to provide event riders with this opportunity.

The Worth The Trust Scholarships for Adult and Young Adult Amateurs are made available through the generosity of Worth The Trust's owner, Joan Goswell, in recognition of her great "little" horse known to all as Trusty.  This 15.3 hands off-the-track thoroughbred took Karen O'Connor to a 5th place at the 1996 Rolex Kentucky Three-day Event, securing the spot as the first reserve for the Atlanta Olympic Games later that year. His talent and bravery took Karen to the winner's enclosure at the 1997 Rolex Kentucky Three-day Event and more than earned him a place in Eventing history.
