style awards

The Style Awards annually celebrate one rider from each discipline recognizing their "style" throughout the week. Not only while mounted, but also in the form of manners and overall demeanor around the competition grounds and at the organized functions. The Style Awards were established by Brian and Penny Ross who have generously donated, in conjunction with Bel Cavallo Bronze, the lovely dressage, eventing and show jumping trophies designed by the artist Timi Saviers of Moscow, TN. The reining trophy was donated by Brad Ettleman. Dennis and Susan Summers have commissioned an endurance trophy.
