Now in its 11th year, the Laura Pickett Excellence in Horsemanship Award presented by Victoria Lowell and Charles Ancona, will be given to an “up and coming” adult or child rider and their trainer competing at the WIHS Regional Horse Show who best exhibit the enthusiasm, dedication, style and commitment to excellent horsemanship that brings out the best in horse and rider. 

Nominees will be designated by wearing a pink armband and will be judged both in and out of the show ring.  The winner will be chosen by committee and will be notified on Sunday, Oct. 24. The winner will receive a custom show coat by Charles Ancona. A presentation will take place at the Washington International Horse Show at The Show Place Arena during show week. 

About the Award 
The Laura Pickett Trophy for Excellence in Horsemanship was created by Vicki Lowell in memory of a very special equestrian and trainer, Laura Pickett, who lost her fight against breast cancer after a five-year battle. The trophy honors her contributions to the sport she loved and the legacy she left behind. She inspired enthusiasm for life, in addition to good horsemanship, and her award is presented to an “up and coming” rider who best exhibits the same qualities.
