In keeping with its purpose—to promote and improve the horse industry in Virginia– the Virginia Horse Council  established an Annual Awards Program. This program is designed to recognize the contributions of all who work diligently to promote and protect the equine industry in the Commonwealth. The Council is a not-for-profit organization formed by horsemen for Virginia horsemen, and the membership and Board of Directors represent all breeds and interests. The VHC hopes to reflect this diversity in the awards program as well.

The VHC encourages you to review the various categories of awards and nominate individuals and groups whom you feel are outstanding representatives of the industry and who work to advance the Virginia horse industry. Awards will be given at the VHC Annual Meeting  held each March. If you have questions, contact one of the VHC Awards Committee members, listed at the bottom of the Nomination Form. We hope you will participate and nominate a group, individual, or business (see the various categories) for a VHC Award!
