The USHJA Lifetime Achievement Award was created in 2008 to honor members whose lifelong
involvement in the sport and the USHJA itself has benefited the industry. Recipients of this award
have dedicated their lives to furthering the disciplines of hunters and jumpers on a national platform.
Award recipients will have their name engraved on the Eugene R. Mische Perpetual Trophy.
Mische, the trophy’s namesake, was a 2001 inductee of the Show Jumping Hall of Fame and
continues to be instrumental in the growth of the industry.
The awards presentation takes place during the Evening of Equestrians Awards Dinner at
the USHJA Annual Meeting.
All active USHJA members are encouraged to nominate a worthy individual for the prestigious award.
Written nominations should include the nominee’s name; the city and state of residence; supporting
accomplishments and accolades; and any other information pertinent to any involvement in the horse
industry. Nominators should also include their name, USHJA member number, email address and daytime
telephone number so the USHJA may contact them for additional details.
