The Right Horse Good People for Good Horses Awards 2020

At The Right Horse Initiative, we believe that great work deserves to be celebrated. The second annual Good People for Good Horses Awards will recognize outstanding community members who dedicate their time and talents to successfully helping horses in transition.

Who’s the person you count on to come out and feed in a blizzard, make a farm call in the middle of the night, or find just the right home for that special equine? Or maybe you know someone who is actively using their voice and platform to enhance visibility and shatter misconceptions surrounding adoption? We want to recognize these passionate supporters of equine adoption.

All members of the horse community are invited to nominate one or more U.S.-based individuals or organizations in six categories:

  • Veterinarian or Veterinary Technician*
  • Trainer
  • Volunteer
  • Farrier
  • Community Partner (such as a riding club, event center, boarding barn, etc.)
  • Wild Card (anyone else—such as a member of the media, photographer, advocate, social media influencer, fundraiser, or staff member)

Nominations are due no later than December 31, 2020, at 11:59 P.M. ET.  

*A total of three awards will be given in the Veterinarian/Veterinary Technician category based on geographical location in Western, Central and Eastern regions of the United States.

A committee of reviewers from our team will review submissions and recommend winners based on subjective criteria.  Awards will be given based upon the nominee’s contributions to equine adoption efforts and the success and impact of the adoption organization they serve. Awards may include belt buckles, plaques, and other swag.
