The first award was for outstanding achievement in fundraising.

They also raised money for the scholarships through the association’s Ornament Extravaganza program.

The second award was for outstanding achievement in promotions. The Brigade was featured in many Equine publications, websites and newspapers to promote the American Saddlebred horse including: The Woodford Sun, ASHA’s Junior Junction, Saddle Horse Report, The Horseman’s Yankee Pedlar, American Saddlebred, The Lexington Herald-Leader,, and They also promoted the American Saddlebred by participating in the Versailles Christmas Parade and were even featured in a story on Lexington’s news channel 36.
