Memorial Awards

Heidi Major Sportsmanship Award

Heidi Major was a young mother and member of the Clover 4-H. She had a lifelong love of horses and excelled in competition. Heidi had the unique ability to encourage those around her and coax that little bit of extra effort and courage out of beginning equestrians. She also had the determination, skill, and savvy to work for the best as a team with her horse. Heidi believed that, regardless of ribbons or trophies, anyone who participates and goes after their goal finds victory in the day.

The recipient of this award will be chosen by the horse project leaders, based on qualities of sportsmanship and character.
