Nominations are due by May 31st!

Whether your horse trainer has helped you master a maneuver in the ranch riding, created a lesson program that teaches young horse lovers the basics of horse care, or is responsible for helping you become the best horsekeeper you can be, we want to honor them. But we need your help! Nominate a trainer for Horse&Rider’s 2022 Trainer of the Year award. 

To nominate a trainer, submit an essay (at least 100 words) describing why this person deserves to be named Horse&Rider’s Trainer of the Year. 

Ten finalists will submit a short video to determine the winner.

If a trainer is selected to be a top-10 finalist, the person who submitted the nomination is responsible for submitting a video (5 minutes or less) describing why the trainer should be selected as Horse&Rider’s Trainer of the Year. Videos can include information on the trainer’s training background, current training program, training philosophy, the trainer’s definition of a good horse person, an example of the trainer giving a lesson, student testimonials, etc.
