This award is given to those that have contributed to the knowledge, promotion and/or education of the public about the Arabian breed.

Horse of the Year

Nominations are solicited from the general membership and the Honoree Committee in January of each year. People are asked to take into consideration the accomplishments/achievements of the horse for the previous calendar year.

The ECAHS Service Award

This award was established by Dr. Richard Stoneback in honor of Bill and Barbara Moore in recognition of a person’s (or people) outstanding service to ECAHS during the previous year. The previous three recipients of this award, along with the ECAHS President, determine the person to be awarded.
