March News: Missy Ann Wins Horse Show of the Year!
VHJA members gave us all a reason to celebrate last month at the annual banquet, hosted at the Hilton Hotel in Burlington on Feb. 5. It was a lovely evening, and many of our riders won awards. Many of our horses, too, including Mondavi, who received The Hanover Street Equitation Horse of the Year award. Mondavi is owned by Michelle and Sven Osgood and ridden by Samantha Howell. London, who recently passed away after a long and wonderful life, received The Jurisprudence Horse of the Year award which honors a horse that goes above and beyond to support his rider, a horse that give his heart to his job. London was owned and loved by Karen Clark who enjoyed many years with London.
We were surprised and thrilled to be honored with The Best VHJA Show of the Year award, presented to the horse show manager whose show has been voted the year’s best by the membership. We received a beautiful perpetual plaque which is proudly hanging in the barn and a lovely tote bag. Many thanks to each and every VHJA member who voted for Missy Ann Stables!
Horse show season is right around the corner. Our horse show dates for 2011 are June 17, 18 and 19, 2011.
