YHS and USSHBA Offer Breeder Awards

Young Horse Show Series & United States Sport Horse Breeders Association Jointly Celebrate Tenth Year With New US Breeder Awards - $2000 in 2020

The United States Sport Horse Breeders Association is pleased to announce a partnership with the Spy Coast Farm Young Horse Show Series for the upcoming season in creating the 2020 USSHBA/YHS Breeder Recognition Awards. $2000 in cash payouts will be made to the breeders of the highest scoring US-bred entries over the course of the qualifier series held this year throughout the country. 
Eligibility parameters and details about scoring will be available on the Young Horse Show and USSHBA websites; results and standings will be updated regularly throughout the year as YHS Qualifiers are held. Awards will be presented at the Saturday Night Lights dinner during the YHS Finals in Tryon, NC.   
Both the Young Horse Show series and the USSHBA celebrate their tenth year in 2020. “The United States Sport Horse Breeders Association (USSHBA) was founded in 2010 to strengthen the presence and recognition of breeders throughout the US sport horse community,” said USSHBA’s President, Mary O’Connor, of Middleburg Virginia. “2020 is the tenth year for both the Young Horse Shows and the USSHBA—it’s the perfect opportunity to team up to recognize in a concrete way the success of US based breeding programs producing high quality young horses. We look forward to building excitement and momentum behind this award over the coming year!” 
The USSHBA is approved as an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit group, and is designed to serve as an independent, united voice in matters of sport governance for breeders across registries and disciplines, to strengthen the bonds that connect breeders to each other and to owners, riders, and trainers, and to foster a sense of community in working together to achieve and recognize success of US bred horses in sport.
