AMHECT Announces Harry Sebring Memorial Grant Recipients



The American Morgan Horse Educational/Charitable Trust (AMHECT) is pleased to announce the 2016 Harry Sebring Memorial Grant recipients. 

A total of seven grant requests were received and selecting the recipients was a very difficult task, said committee chair Sara Foy. "The committee was impressed with the diversity of the submissions, and innovative and creative spirit of the ideas.” added Carolyn Sebring. "I’m confident Harry would be delighted with the two awards the committee has selected. We applaud everyone’s hard work on their submission."

This year’s recipients are:

Dallas Bolen of Sunchaser Morgans in Hermiston, Oregon, to further her training and skills in the area of carriage driving. Dallas will be attending a clinic to learn the essentials of hitching and driving pairs.

Aletta Husmann of Sugarland, Texas, to further her training and skills in horsemanship at the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead under the direction of CEWL Equestrians.

Harry Sebring was a renowned Morgan horse trainer and the grant was created by his family in his memory, since he always wanted to see young adults excel personally and professionally in the show ring. The grant is offered to young adults (under age 40) who are AMHA members and would like to further his or her equine education, skills, or proficiency and/or to provide equine-related experiences and education that will further the recipient's business endeavors.

Congratulations to everyone and we encourage submissions for 2017. The grant period will open on January 1, 2017 and close on March 15, 2017.
