Banquet of all Banquets

I would like to thank everyone that showed up last night to show their support for our organization and these wonderful horses. It was a great night and really showcased these awesome animals. I had a blast. I would like to thank everyone who sent in for the Ambassador Award essays and encourage you to do it again. I would also like to thank, the 2008 and 2009 officers, the banquet committee, Elizabeth, Lella, and everyone who helped set up yesterday. A very special thanks to all the SPHO-NJ sponsors as well as, Dr Patty Hogan, Bill Weaver & The Fagliarone family for your very generous gifts to our club. I truly had a great time and it makes me proud to be a part of a wonderful organization.

The 2008 Ambassador Standardbred Award winner was Taurmade and Helene Gregory. Helene being a very close friend of mine made the inaugural award a pleasure for me. Taurmade was a true ambassador for this breed. He has done so much that the normal person would not see. It was an honor to be able to present this award to a horse who gave so much, it is just sad that he is not with us to enjoy what he has done!

Congratulations to all winners and a big congratulations to Laura Harbour for her hard work and taking home the National High Point Award.

Thanks for reading!

  1. THANK YOU for doing such a fabulous job with the banquet! I had an absolutely fabulous time! The only problem is that I live too far away and cannot spend more time with you all. I am so proud to be a part of SPHO-NJ! I am excited to come back for the 3-day show in August.....but honestly I am plotting ways to come back before then! :D THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!
