FEI and USDF Young Dressage Horse Year-End Winners

FEI and USDF Young Dressage Horse Year-End Winners

This award was originally conceived by Maurine (Mo) and Jim Swanson of Rolling Stone Farm in Slatington, Pa., as a new year-end award for American Hanoverian Society breeders and owners in 2006. The Swanson's commissioned a beautiful painting that hangs in the AHS office in Lexington, Ky. AHS Website Director Sandra Werkheiser continued the sponsorship through 2013 at which time the AHS assumed responsibility, Each year, the names of the three winners are added on small brass plates around the frame and winners receive keepsake trophies with a photo of the painting at the annual meeting banquet.

The FEI and USDF Young Dressage Horse Awards have been generously sponsored by Hilltop Farm for 2020-24

To be eligible for these awards, the horses must be in the AHS Registry (transferred in the case of German-papered horses) and the owner must be a current year member of the AHS (Active, Associate, Junior). Also, we do require that the horse is Lifetime Recorded with USDF, and the owner and rider must be participating members with the USDF for their scores to count and medians to be determined. We strongly encourage that our members have declared the AHS as "their registry of choice" with the USDF so all of the important bases are covered and so the horses are already "set up" for All Breeds. Congratulations to all.
