2007 Award Winners:

AUZHI-MAHB Cash Prizes Awarded at Devon

The Dressage at Devon Breed Show held annually at Devon, PA, is the country’s largest and most prestigious show of its kind.  Simply placing in the ribbons at this show is quite an honor.  But this year Paul Cohen of Associations Underwriters & Ziplow Horse Insurance (AUZHI) added a new dimension to this time-honored venue. 

In an effort to promote breeders in the region, Cohen, long time supporter of the Mid-Atlantic Hanoverian Breeders Club (MAHB), announced the  creation of AUZHI-MAHB Awards consisting of two $1000 cash prizes for registered Hanoverians bred by MAHB members.  The awards were presented for the first time at the 2007 DAD Breed Show, September 26-27.

Guidelines for the awards are:  $1000 to the high-placing registered Hanoverian bred by a MAHB member and entered in its respective open in-hand class of the Young Horse Division at Devon and another $1000 to the high-placing Hanoverian in the Mature Horse Division (also bred by a MAHB member); the awards to be split equally between owner and breeder.  The owner need not be a current MAHB member.  Mr. Cohen has designated these awards as annual events at DAD with the possibility of adding a similar award in the future for under-saddle horses in the breeding division.

It is anticipated that more owners of MAHB-bred Hanoverians will want to vie for the prizes next year, and breeders will receive some hard-earned recognition.  After all, every successful horse, whether Grand Prix jumper, dressage competitor or child’s hunter, had it’s genesis in the mind and heart of the breeder.

In this inaugural year, the money went to two dedicated, long-standing MAHB members.  The Young Horse Award went to Rheporter (Royal Prince-EM Whispre/Weltmeyer), two-year-old chestnut filly owned and bred by Maurine (Mo) Swanson, Slatington, PA.  Rheporter took second place in the Two-Year-Old Fillies class which had 32 entries.  She went on to be Reserve Champion Filly in the Great American/USDFBC Qualifier Championship.  Mo took home the entire $1000 prize since she was both owner and breeder.

Mature Horse Award went to Ghlacier (Gold Luck-Piper/Pablo) owned by Lauren Dearlove, Lovettsville, VA and bred by Mo Swanson.  Owner and breeder split the award, getting $500 each.
