Congratulations to Teresa Young, 2020's Proteus Award Winner! Despite all of the Covid-19 restrictions last year, Teresa managed to get out and have many experiences with her treasured horse! We hope to include a picture of Teresa and her beloved partner soon!
The CHS Proteus Award is given each year to the horse and rider/driver team that demonstrates the greatest versatility. Proteus, according to classical mythology, was a sea god, son of Oceanus and Tethys, noted for his ability to assume forms and to prophecy. The term Proteus, according to dictionaries, can be applied to a “person or thing that readily changes appearance, character, principles, etc.” (Random House unabridged dictionary).
This annual competition is very important to CHS. It encourages competitors to experience the widest range of activities with their horses and furthers CHS’ objectives of promoting equine events and the education of area horse enthusiasts. CHS encourages everyone from the novice to the most experienced riders to compete. We expect a wide range of activities and performance in this kind of competition. The judging committee will be announced
later in the year. Awards are given at the annual meeting each March.
