So the money is the only issue for this sport there? (yes, I know money is an issue in ANY country, but I had a feeling it's not a poor country really). In any case good luck to her!

I think that it had just been so long since they had a rider to send that there really wasn't a fund in place to send dressage riders in general. So now that they have one to back they are trying to make sure they have the funds together to send her. Just how I read into it. I hope she does well and that this drums up more interest in dressage in Norway.
