Nominations are now open for the EQUUS Foundation Humanitarian Award. The EQUUS Foundation Humanitarian Award was jointly established by the U.S. Equestrian Federation and the EQUUS Foundation in 2009 to celebrate the humanitarian achievements made by a member of the equine community. The goal of this humanitarian honor is to spotlight the selfless dedication one individual or a group of individuals has made, whether on a regional or national scale.
The award will be presented at the Pegasus Awards Dinner on Jan. 10, 2014, during the USEF Annual Meeting in Lexington, Ky. The recipient of the Humanitarian Award will receive a $5,000 grant from the EQUUS Foundation to be awarded to the equine-related charity of his or her choice. Nominations close Nov. 11, and the nomination form is available online.
