Equine Industry Vision Award Nominations Due Jan. 15
Jan. 15 is the deadline date for nominations for the annual Equine Industry Vision Award, which will be presented at the American Horse Publications Annual Seminar in Lexington, Ky., on June 11. Pfizer Animal Health sponsors the award in partnership with American Horse Publications and developed the award to recognize outstanding leadership, creativity and meritorious contributions in the equine industry.
Anyone is eligible to be nominated, or to nominate a candidate for the Equine Industry Vision Award and nominees may include individuals and/or organizations. Candidates may be considered for a single outstanding visionary achievement or for sustained outstanding contributions that have made a profound impact on the equine industry.
In recognition of these achievements, the award recipient is given the Equine Industry Vision Award Perpetual Trophy, created in the finest full lead crystal by master artisan Peter Wayne Yenawine and commissioned by Pfizer Animal Health. In addition to the perpetual trophy, the winner receives a smaller version of the award as a memento of this unique recognition.
At a breakfast sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health during the American Horse Publications Annual Seminar in Hunt Valley, Md. in June 2003, Don Burt was honored as the 2003 Equine Industry Vision Award winner.
The other five finalists for the 2003 Equine Industry Vision Award included the American Quarter Horse Association, Stanley F. Bergstein, Frank Gravlee, DVM, MS, CNS, Matthew Mackay-Smith, DVM, and Robert Vavra. These finalists will automatically be entered in the 2004 competition.
