The Saskatchewan Reined Cow Horse Association, with the generous sponsorship of Vetoquinol, was proud to introduce two very exclusive &elite year-end awards in 2011. These two beautiful perpetual travelling bronze awards have become an on-going record of the Vetoquinol SRCHA Horse of the Year and the Vetoquinol SRCHA Most Sportsmanlike awards. Each trophy has the winner's name engraved on a brass name plate, mounted on the trophy base each year & the winners keep the actual bronze trophy for one year at which time they receive a commemorative plaque from the SRCHA and the trophy will be presented to the award winner for the next year.
The voting for these two distinctive awards is made by SRCHA members themselves making the awards very special indeed. To be eligible for either the horse of the year award or the sportsmanlike award, horses or members need to attend at least half of the shows in the current show season and this is also the criteria used to decide eligible voters as well, so that the people most familiar with what actually happened at the shows were the ones making these very important decisions. Nominations close at the end of the last regular jackpot show of the season and voting is completed and awards presented at our year-end finals futurity &derby show where both the horse and riders are recognized for their contributions &performance throughout the year.
Nominations are in and now it's time to VOTE for our very special year-end awards! Please send your votes prior to AUGUST 15 to Noreen at firstname.lastname@example.org (also a reminder even if you have sent me a nomination that you still need to now send me an actual vote).
Nominations are as follows:
HORSE OF THE YEAR In making the decision to nominate or vote for HORSE OF THE YEAR award, the SRCHA encourages nominations of horses that personify a willing attitude and natural cow sense, and that make an athletic consistent team with their rider(s); therefore, it does not need to necessarily be the most successful in the show pen.

SRCHA MOST SPORTSMANLIKE The SRCHA encourages the nomination of persons who are consistently courteous and supportive of their fellow competitors and show personnel, and who encourage and promote the sport of Reined Cow Horse.
MOST IMPROVED YOUTH
PLEASE take a second to VOTE…any SRCHA member that has attended 3 of our shows this season is eligible to vote (that means a minimum of 3 days of shows in 2015). It would be nice to see everyone who has attended 3 days of shows or more to vote! Thanks everyone.
