The USEA Year End Awards Ceremony provides an opportunity for the sport to recognize those horses and riders who excelled in eventing throughout the year. It is also an opportunity to recognize and honor the very important people who have served the sport tirelessly both in a non-riding capacity and riding capacity during their golden years.
While it is a simple matter of tabulating points earned in a competition to arrive at horse and rider awards, it is a very different proposition when it comes to the non-rider awards; these awards require nominations from our members.
The Appreciation Awards Committee is currently accepting nominations for the awards listed below. If you know someone who is deserving of one of these awards, please submit your nominations for consideration to:
Cathy Forsberg, Chairman of the USEA Appreciation Awards Committee
c/o USEA Attn: Hannah Temple
Email: [email protected]
Fax: (703) 779-0550
The deadline for nominations is Monday, November 4, 2019.
The USEA Awards Ceremony will be held during the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention, December 12-15, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.
NOMINATION FOR CONSIDERATION IS TO INCLUDE
Name of award, name of nominee, address of nominee, USEA area, age (if applicable) and, the reason for the nomination. The reason for the nomination should include a concise but detailed biography of your nominee, clearly describing the attributes that pay tribute to the criteria of the award up for consideration.
If your nominee is selected, a photo will also be required. To make this experience exciting for both the recipients and attendees of the awards dinner, the names selected will be kept a secret until the award is presented. Although it may not be an easy task, we ask those making the nomination to ensure that the candidate is able to attend the awards dinner.
