WSHJA Celebrates 60th Anniversary Awards With Lots Of Sparkle

by WSHJA Member Services February 2, 2013 in Awards

It was a festive and glittery evening for the recipients of WSHJA 2012 Annual Awards. The room filled with riders and their adoring fans (aka parents, grandparents, fellow barn mates, and longtime supporters of WSHJA) to celebrate not only this year’s award recipients but to remember many of the greats from a 60 year history.

There was a lot to celebrate. And many people to recognize. WSHJA presented 36 State Awards, 82 National Awards, 30 USHJA Zone 9 Awards. Plus WSHJA honored four President’s Cup Awards recipients, three Sportsmanship Award recipients and three USHJA Affiliate Equitation Awards for the WSHJA Good Seat & Hands Medal. That’s a lot of celebrating.

The whole evening was made possible through the generous contributions of our member volunteers. A huge thanks goes out to;

  • Our talented announcers Scott Trewin, Bo Masters and Trevor Peterson we made it through in record time. A full evening indeed, but with 129 awards to present what are you going to do. Our announcers kept it flowing, presenting each award with enthusiasm and good spirit throughout the night.
  • Karen Freywald and her well organized team of ribbon and prize presenters Kim Gilmore, Melody Gilmore, Amy Kosmos, Val Nelson, Stephanie Von Gortler, Diane Renihan.
  • Betsy Christianson, Gillian Baird, Peter Brandon and Grady Kerron for presenting all the perpetual trophies. Lauren Myers and Emily Hilton for handing out the USHJA Zone 9 trophies.
  • The whole stylish movie star worthy room is thanks to Lynn Trewin and her band of volunteers Laney Senyohl, Krista Taylor, Liza Taylor, Camille Brash, Kim Stuckens, Jennifer Sparks
  • Jessica Vania for the commemorative program that will surely be a keepsake for years to come. And to Gary Voth, Rory Wade-Easely, Bobbie Harder for the photo slideshows that reminded us all what great company we are in.
  • Pat Domine and all the donors and bidders who made the silent auction a success, raising $6200 in support of the WSHJA Scholarship Fund.
  • Nancy Lewis, Suzanne Hitz and Katie Seymour for handling 420 registrations with grace and efficiency.
  • The Katies for raising $1300 in the raffle. Katie Nubel of CWD for donating the bridle and reins.  Katie Sputh for her stellar ticket sales.

We also owe a great deal of thanks to the evening's sponsors. Clare Warren of Archway Equestrian for generously hosting the welcome bubbly. Dacels Jewelers for making it possible for WSHJA to give the beautifully engraved watches and pendants to our champions and reserve champions.


Our sincere apologies if we have forgotten to mention someone. The Annual Awards Banquet is only possible with the support of our members. We appreciate you all and hope you enjoyed the evening.
