Time Is Running Out to Nominate for the Amateur Sportsmanship Award!

The goal of the Amateur Sportsmanship Award is to recognize Amateur Owner and Adult Amateur exhibitors who exhibit a degree of excellence and integrity by supporting their fellow competitors and volunteering their time and resources to various aspects of the industry. Examples of this include serving on committees, providing sponsorships and promoting the welfare of the horse. Success in the show ring is a secondary factor.


Nominations for the award may come from exhibitors, trainers, colleagues or peers. The nominee must be an Active or Associate member of USHJA. Members of the Amateurs Task Force are not eligible for nomination. Previous winners of the award are not eligible for further nomination, however, prior nominees are encouraged to be resubmitted for future consideration.  


The deadline to nominate a deserving Amateur Owner or Adult Amateur is October 15, 2014
