The Horse Agility Club is delighted to announce the winner of this prestigious award:
Nancy Ingalls and Magnetic Attraction (Woody) of Prince Edward Island, Canada
With a very special mention to
Maggie Cason and Biggs (Biggy) of Colorado, USA
Highland Park, a Morgan horse, was born on 23rd March 1994 and was the first horse ever to be registered with The Horse Agility Club in February 2009. Highland just loved playing at liberty and that is how Brenda would like to honour her memory:
‘I would like to remember Highland on her birthday each year for the next 10 years by donating £20 to an environmental charity, chosen from a list, by an HA club member and their equine who work at liberty in a very special way.
I would like the emphasis to be on joy, enthusiasm and safety, not accuracy…so open to those pairs where the horse might do things in their own sweet individual way and, perhaps as Highland used to do, go off and do an obstacle again without being asked!’
The winner will receive the title Highland Park Liberty Memorial Award plus a certificate. There will be no rosette, only a virtual one, which coincides with Brenda’s wishes on ecological grounds.
