Recognition for a job well done is something that makes your day that much brighter, especially if you don’t expect it because you are doing something you love or supporting someone you love.
Each year at our Awards Banquet, we offer you the opportunity to recognize a person (or persons) that stand out in your mind for their sportsmanship, their dedication, someone who has gone “above & beyond” expectations. This might be a competitor, a coach, a volunteer, a mentor, a groom, a parent, a horse show employee. Throughout the season keep your eye out for someone who deserves one of the awards below. The banquet committee will be requesting nominations at the end of the season.
Michelle Monkhouse Junior Sportsman Award and Senior Sportsmanship Award
Sportsmanship awards are presented to a junior competitor and an adult competitor. The winners of the Sportsmanship Award should exemplify the ideas of fair play, a strong and dedicated work ethic and a positive attitude towards both horses and people.
The Clifford Haines Memorial Award for Outstanding Show Staff
This award recognizes a horse show staff person who always exceeds our expectations and goes out of their way to make our horse show day better.
The Cassie Bonnar Award
The Cassie Bonnar Award (Junior Equestrian of the Year) is awarded to a junior member who has made an outstanding contribution of time and effort to equestrian sport. This award is named for a courageous young woman who loved horses and cared for them passionately. Always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need, Cassie Bonnar exemplified the qualities of a great young equestrian and humanitarian.
Outstanding Contribution Award
This award recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the Central East Circuit. Nominees may be a parent, exhibitor, trainer, volunteer or any dedicated individual who goes out of their way to support the Central East Zone. Nominees should also display tireless dedication, unflagging good humour, a positive attitude, and good sportsmanship.
This event would not be possible without the generous support of our division and event sponsors. Their sponsorship allows us to continue to provide our competitors with the beautiful ribbons and prizes that they receive.
