The Cathleen Quinn Junior Sportsmanship Award will be given to a Junior member who has earned the Sportsmanship Award, based on conduct and example, not popularity, shown through being a mentor, a leader, a friend, and a true horseman.
The goal of the Catherine Shanley Award is to recognize the 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. Success in the show ring to be a secondary factor.
The Horseperson of the Year will be awarded to a member of the CDHJC who have given of themselves unselfishly and who have shown by past performance a sincere interest in the industry and are deserving of recognition. Selection will be based on conduct, example, and contribution to the industry, and not on popularity.
