The Clovis Award
This award has been established to recognize dressage riders who are successfully competing while always placing their horse's needs and well-being ahead of their own goals and desires. Our intention is to recognize strong partnerships and dedication to the horse's mental and physical soundness.
The rider(s) selected will receive a collection of equine related products, gift certificates from equestrian businesses and Triple Crown feed. In addition, the award includes a cash prize to be utilized for an approved clinic or educational event to advance the horse and rider team in their training together.
Eligible riders for this award must reside in the United States and be nominated by an equine professional (trainer, judge/official, veterinarian, or farrier) who recognizes their strong dedication to the comfort of their equine partner. The nomination period will open January 1, 2020 and continue through October 31, 2020. Once nominated a detailed application will be mailed to the nominee, to be completed and submitted by December 1, 2020. The panel will review all applications and announce the winner in early January 2021.
Clovis touched many lives during his 27 years. This award has been developed to ensure that Clovis' legacy and teachings continue for many years to come, and that strong horsemanship and dedication to our equine partners is recognized and promoted throughout our industry.
