UPHA RIBBONS OF SERVICE ADDS PERFORMANCE EXHIBITOR DIVISION, EARMARKED SCHOLARSHIP

The popular UPHA Ribbons of Service Program that has offered $ 22,500 in scholarships for saddle seat equitation riders since 2009 has added a new $2,500 scholarship for junior exhibitor riders/drivers who compete in the performance division. Payable to the UPHA Ribbons Of Service participant who raises the most funds as a performance rider/driver in a show-horse discipline represented by a breed association that is a participant in UPHA, the new award and scholarship broaden the focus of the UPHA’s successful, character-building program that emphasizes community service and charitable fundraising.
“We’re very pleased that UPHA Ribbons Of Service is growing to include more young people,” said UPHA President Gary Garone. “That means more service to our communities, more funds for wonderful charities like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, more publicity for our industry -- and, more scholarships for our juvenile exhibitors, like the new $2,500 one funded by UPHA.”
Eligible disciplines for the new performance division include saddle seat, hunt seat, stock seat and driving; eligible breeds include Hackney Pony, American Saddlebred, Morgan, National Show Horse, and Arabian/Half-Arabian ridden or driven in non-equitation classes. The UPHA Ribbons Of Service participant must raise a minimum of $1,000 for an approved charity and perform at least 10 community service hours to be eligible for any scholarship offered by the program.
“We remain dedicated,” said UPHA Ribbons Of Service Chairwoman Helen Robertson, “to the promotion of saddle seat equitation. We believe it is a cornerstone of the saddle seat sport, and are very pleased that the full contingent of scholarships remains available to saddle seat equitation participants. If any performance division rider or driver completes at least two saddle seat equitation classes, that participant is eligible for many other scholarships.”
Those scholarships include:
• $5,000 for saddle seat equitation rider who raises the highest overall amount of funds (donated by Golden Creek Farms)
• $1,000 for saddle seat equitation rider who raises the highest overall amount of funds (donated by Pidgeon Roost Farm)
• $1,000 for overall saddle seat equitation rider who raises the second highest amount of funds (anonymously donated)

 


• $2,500 for American Saddlebred saddle seat equitation rider who raises the highest amount of funds (donated by Golden Creek Farms)
• $2,500 for Arabian saddle seat equitation rider who raises the highest amount of funds (donated by Golden Creek Farms)
• $2,500 for Morgan saddle seat equitation rider who raises the highest amount of funds (donated by Golden Creek Farms)
• $2,500 for National Show Horse saddle seat equitation rider who raises the highest amount of funds (donated by Golden Creek Farms)
• $2,000 for youngest saddle seat equitation rider who raises the highest amount of funds (donated by Becker Brothers LLC)
• $1,000 for youngest saddle seat equitation rider who raises the highest amount of funds (donated by Independent Equine Agents)
• $1,500 for saddle seat equitation rider who performs the most community service hours (donated by Kenneth & Ceil Wheeler)
• $1,000 for saddle seat equitation rider who has the most community service hours and will attend William Woods University (donated by William Woods University)
Last year’s overall winner was 12-year old Jordyn Isgrigg of Mt. Washington, Ky. Jordyn raised $17,400 for St. Jude by competing in saddle seat equitation classes, performed 112 hours of community service, and won $11,000 in scholarships.
“We invite young riders and drivers to enrich their lives -- and the lives of others -- with the UPHA Ribbons Of Service program,” said Garone. “It’s easy to enroll and rewarding to participate.”
In addition to minimum fundraising and community service participation, other rules apply, and are disclosed in the UPHA Ribbons Of Service Rules for 2013 Show Season. For more information, visit
