THE CATHLEEN M. QUINN JUNIOR SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD: Nominations for the Junior Sportsmanship Award should be based on conduct and example. The Award is in memory of Cathleen M. Quinn: “Cathleen was a special person. You knew that the minute you met her. She was a mentor, a leader, a friend, a true horseman and an inspiration to all who knew her. She had a tremendous amount of patience when working with her horses and people. She always put her horses first, never putting her own needs and ambitions before them. She also made time for teaching those around her proper horsemanship. She was dedicated to her horses, going to the barn every day, in any type of weather. She picked her stalls and groomed her own horses, even braiding them for horse shows. Cathleen was a passionate person, never complaining, always smiling. She truly loved life and lived each of her young days to the fullest. She was always willing to lend a hand, whenever help was needed. Cathleen was a true friend. After the work was done, we spent a lot of time up in the hay loft talking about anything and everything. We still miss her.” Written with love by the Stewart Family, Delmar, NY
CATHERINE SHANLEY AWARD: Nominations should recognize an Amateur member who exhibits a degree of excellence and integrity by supporting their fellow competitors and volunteers their time and resources to various aspects of the industry. Examples of this include: serving on committees, providing sponsorships, and promoting the welfare of the horse.
