A note from Ruthie Haney
I want to thank each one of you who took the time to apply for this award. When I lost Dreamer, I knew that I wanted to do something like this. He was more than just a horse to many people; he represented hope, and determination. He was a teacher, a fierce competitor, a loyal and faithful friend. Together we defied the odds and overcame more than one obstacle; we had many highs and lows. But he never wavered from my side, Dreamer was a constant and unyielding presence up until the moment he passed away; even after I know he is still with me, always.
I felt that it was important to recognize this bond that we have with our horses; no matter what discipline we ride or what type of saddle we sit in. Dreamer encompassed what it is we seek in Arabian horses; he possessed every quality and more. I know that there are many more out there who have those same qualities. I greatly look forward to your submissions.
Good Luck and Happy Trails,
