In 2006, USHJA created a new award category, the USHJA President's
Distinguished Service Awards. These were developed by the President and
staff to recognize and honor the dedication and service by members
to USHJA and our sport. The staff and President reviewed the programs
of USHJA and the work involved in developing and implementing them
and those individuals who have gone beyond the call of duty to bring
our sport to a new level and to benefit our membership.
These awards are presented annually at the USHJA Evening of Equestrians
Awards Dinner. The recipients of these awards remain a surprise
until the night of the presentations.
