We all know someone in the horse industry who goes that extra mile to keep our horses healthy, happy and on track. Whether it's a trainer, a farrier, a veterinarian or a stable manager, that professional makes a difference to us and our horses. Now you can show your appreciation for that person (and win some great prizes, too) by nominating him or her for EQUUS' Professional Horseman Award. This year's contest is sponsored by Emerald Valley, Freedom Health and Kentucky Performance Products, LLC.

The winner will be selected by the EQUUS editorial team based on the uniqueness and overall appeal of his or her essay.
"In today's busy world, it's more important than ever to recognize the people who work hardest to keep our horses healthy and happy," noted EQUUS Editor Laurie Prinz. "This contest is a special 'thank-you' to those industry professionals who most deserve our appreciation.”
