The History of our Scholarships

The Deanne McCrea Memorial Scholarships

Deanne McCrae & Charlie Memorial Scholarship for the International Society of Rider Biomechanics

Deanne McCrea was one of the original founders and official coaches of the International Society of Rider Biomechanics.

Deanne was an integral part of the Society, contributing in a major way to our success in supporting the Society and arranging clinics in the Colo area of NSW, Australia.

Deanne passed away suddenly without warning in 2010. It is was great personal loss, a great loss to the Society and to the horse professional around the world.

Deanne was always a high achiever, a great organiser, a motivated, generous spirit, and a great supporter of the Society. In 2010 the Fellows of the Society announced the foundation of the “Deanne McCrae Memorial Scholarships”, and in 2011 she was posthumously awarded our highest honor “Fellow of the International Society of Rider Biomechanics”.

Deanne’s loss, at such a young age, was a tragedy to us all, however her memory lives on in the Deanne McCrea Memorial Scholarships.  The Scholarships are funded solely by donations, your membership fees and our annual gala fundraiser.

We ask that you always remember her family in your prayers.
