The UPHA Announces Its 2006 Tom Moore Hall Of Fame Members


The Board of Directors of the United Professional Horsemen’s Association is honored to announce the newest members of the UPHA Hall of Fame.  These outstanding trainers will be honored at the UPHA Annual Convention, being held in Cincinnati, Ohio on January 4-6, 2007.


To be eligible for induction into the UPHA Hall of Fame, a person must have derived his or her livelihood form the profession of training show horses or ponies.  He or she must have reached their success not only through the champion horses and ponies they have developed and shown, but must possess the respect of their peers throughout the professional conduct they have maintained throughout their careers.  He or she must have willingly given of themselves, the knowledge which they have acquired over the years, in efforts to help their fellow professionals and further the success of the show horse industry and the training profession.  Induction into the UPHA Hall Of Fame means this person has earned the highest esteem of their peers.


On Friday evening, January 5th, 2007, the UPHA will posthumously induct Mr. Randy Tabor into the UPHA Tom Moore Hall of Fame. His family will be present to accept a plaque honoring his membership in the Hall of Fame and to share memories with friends.


Richard and Jeanette Durant, of Homer Glen, IL, will receive their UPHA Hall of Fame blazers during the awards dinner on Saturday, January 6th, 2007, as will Mr. Ross Drake, of Carmel, IN.


Information for the 2007 UPHA Annual Convention will be mailed out to all current UPHA members the week of November 13th, 2006.  The registration information and agenda can also be found on our web site,


We would like to encourage family, friends and colleagues of Richard and Jeanette Durant, Ross Drake and Randy Tabor to make plans to attend the awards dinners at the convention to help the newest members of the UPHA Tom Moore Hall of Fame celebrate a grand accomplishment.
