Bill Weeks, Leo Conroy, Caroline Moran and Dr Betsee Parker accept the National Horse Show’s award for ‘Horse Show of the Year’.
Haverford, PA – May 28, 2014 – For the third consecutive year, the National Horse Show has been named the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame Horse Show of the Year.
The esteemed honor was awarded as a result of voting by members of the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame, and it was presented at Tuesday night’s annual National Show Hunter Hall of Fame Awards Dinner at the Merion Cricket Club. During the dinner, held each year during the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair, the leading riders, owners and trainers in the show hunter industry gather to recognize and honor the horses, riders and horse shows that are positively shaping and impacting the sport.
Accepting the award on behalf of the National Horse Show was board member Leo G. Conroy, joined by fellow board members Caroline Moran, Ernie Oare, Dr. Betsee Parker and Bill Weeks.
“On behalf of the officers and directors of the National Horse Show, I would like to thank everyone who voted for us this year, and for those who didn’t, we know who you are,” joked Conroy. “We’re going to get you next year, because we’re going to keep trying to run what we believe is the premier hunter event in the country.”
Conroy continued, “Thank you all for your votes and we look forward to seeing you in November and hopefully again up here next year.”
The National Horse Show will return to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY from October 28 – November 2, 2014. For more information on the National Horse Show, please visit www.nhs.org.
