  • Educate Oregon youth by improving their horsemanship skills.
  • Build life training skills for Oregon youth through the field of competition.
  • Encourage higher education for youth trainers by offering college scholarships to graduating seniors
 Teens and Oregon Mustangs scholarships

Benjamin E. Holmes Sportsmanship Recognition Award

Sportsmanship, by definition, is a goal that a sport or an activity will be enjoyed for its own sake, with proper consideration for fairness, ethics, respect, a sense of fellowship with one’s competitors and acting with dignity regardless if winning or losing.

This year the Teens and Oregon Mustangs have the honor to present a Sportsmanship Award to one or more of the trainers participating in the 2013 program.   How you behave, how you embrace good sportsmanship conduct can help you be a recipient of the Benjamin E. Holmes Sportsmanship Recognition Award.  

 The Benjamin E. Holmes Sportmanship Recognition Award is being funded and sponsored by David and Susan Leding of Corvallis, Oregon and Jonathan Holmes of Minnesota in memory and honor of a young man very dear to them who loved horses, loved animals and had a high sense of what good sportsmanship is all about.

The person[s] who has the most votes from the other trainers in the program will be the lucky winner[s]!  All the trainers will vote for the one person each trainer believes has shown the best sportsmanship during the whole competion — from pick up day through the final Event.  The voting will take place during the Event on August 24, 2013 and the award will be presented during the award ceremony before the horse auction by David and Susan Leding to the lucky winner[s].

 Sponsorship Opportunities — Excellent marketing opportunities with high visibility.
