Each year the Area 3 Board of Directors watches the activity at the horse shows and related club events throughout the year to find possible youth candidates who would fit the criteria of an “achiever” in the horse world. The recipient of this award is someone who must exemplify both sportsmanship and horsemanship. An individual who is a role model for all youth, generous and courteous to all. Helpful and instrumental in various club activities. Quick to offer congrats and encouragement. Treating her/his horse with respect and care. A youth who cares deeply for the quarter horse’s versatile qualities. It is with careful thought and consideration of all the great youth in our club that the executive, with some assistance from others within our industry, must select one individual who sets the standard for excellence. This years recipient of the youth achievement award is Hannah Buijs.
THE LATEST AROUND AREA 3…
This award is given in honor of one of our very own special members. Linda Lambert was an untiring volunteer of this club for many years. A carded WHAO judge, ring steward, board member, and avid horse enthusiast, she was the active wheel that kept the club turning. In 1999, while ring stewarding a horse show, a lightning strike took her life. In her spirit of giving, the Helping Hands award was established so that we may recognize and thank those special people that do not ask for accolades or payback, Sundays off or overtime. They simply do what needs to be done, see the job through come rain or shine.
A huge thank you to this years recipient Nancy Mosley for her volunteer work managing our trail ring at the Spring Classic and helping out with scribing and ring stewarding at the shows. We appreciate your help greatly!
