Special Awards Winners! Congratulations to all!

In December we sent a nomination form out to our members for some special awards. The nominations have been reviewed and voted on by the Board and Committees.

Without our volunteers, members, event organizers, etc Working Equitation could not grow like it has been in the United States.

Thank you does not even come close to expressing our appreciation to all the individuals who have gone above and beyond in volunteering, being positive, and working to achieve their WE goals.

These individuals were chosen to receive special awards and certificates.

She has supported WE for years, and has been absolutely indispensable in preparing documents for the Confederation, including databases, drafts of various programs and forms, and maintained the RULES. She worked on the committee to prepare and revise the rules, as well as on the Licensed Officials Committee and the Show Committee.

Kate Fowler
Nomination statement we received:
I have only recently met Kate Fowler. I have found her to be a great asset in the WE world. She hosted 2 WE shows this past Summer, she did so with grace and efficiency. She ran her shows well and still managed to show 2 of her horses in the classes also. Being from out of town I had many questions when I got to the show grounds. Kate took the time to show us everything we needed to know and then helped just a little more. She is a great supporter of this sport and an excellent example of how a competitor should handle themselves. I look forward to riding with and against her in the future. Thank you for considering her for the sportsmanship award.

Kim McBroom
Nomination statement we received:
Kim is a lovely rider. When I watch her, I strive to ride better myself. She always has a kind word and words of encouragement for fellow riders. When she has a bad ride or things don't go as well for her, she takes that information and makes the next ride better. Always positive and just a nice person.
