Deadline Approaches for USHJA Lifetime Achievement & Jane Marshall Dillon Award Nominations

The deadline for the 2013 USHJA Lifetime Achievement Award and Jane Marshall Dillon Award is July 31, 2013.


Established in 2008, the Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to honor members who have dedicated their lives to furthering the hunter/jumper discipline on a national platform and whose involvement in the sport and the USHJA have benefited the industry. The 2013 recipients will join an illustrious list of past winners, such as Joe Fargis, and have their names added to the Eugene R. Mische Perpetual Trophy.


Created in 2010, the Jane Marshall Dillon Award recognizes the dedication of equestrian teachers within the hunter/jumper discipline who have devoted their lives to instilling the values of horsemanship, integrity and hard work in their students. The winner will have their name placed on the Jane Marshall Dillon Perpetual Trophy which resides in the USHJA headquarters in Lexington, KY.  


The 2013 honorees for these prestigious awards will be recognized at the USHJA Annual Meeting, December 8-12, 2013 in Atlanta, GA.   


All active USHJA members are encouraged to nominate for these prominent awards. Written nominations must include: the nominee's name; the city and state of residence; supporting documentation of accomplishments and accolades; and any other information pertinent to their involvement in the horse industry. Nominators should also include their name, USHJA member number, mailing address and daytime telephone number in the event that USHJA needs to contact them for additional details. The nomination form can be downloaded from the USHJA website.

Please submit nominations via email to Marla Holt or mail them to 3870 Cigar Lane, Lexington, KY 40511.
