The Greengate Farm Awards

For the American Breeders of the USDF Finals Hanoverian & Rhineland Winners

Rachel and Warren Ehrlich of Greengate Farm, a prominent Hanoverian breeding farm in Massachusetts, developed and sponsor the Greengate Farm Award given to recognize the breeders of American-born Hanoverian & Rhineland horses that have been USDF Dressage Finals winners.

These awards were first given in 2019 when 3 of the 4 Finals winners were American-born.  With the growth of the USDF Finals to now include Junior/Young Riders, there are a potential of 5 divisions for both Hanoverian & Rhineland registries being awarded each year (AA USDF Levels, AA FEI Levels, Junior/Young Rider all levels, Open USDF Levels, & Open FEI Levels).
