CLUB CORRAL


CC In November, members gathered at the


Idaho Center in Nampa for the fi fth annual ABHA banquet. At the event, the Association took time out to honor two members who have made lasting contributions on behalf of Blazer Horses. The newest recipients of the Ambas- sador Award, which recognizes members for their lasting dedication to Blazers, were Brian Harper and Josh Cram. Harper has been involved with Blazers since the breed was created by his father, Neil Hinck. Harper served on the ABHA’s Board of Directors and has been the driving force behind writing the rules and regulations for the Association. As for Cram, he was introduced to the breed by his parents, Stewart and Katharine Cram, and has also been involved with Blazers for his entire life. Josh moved to Utah and began breeding Blazers, almost single-handedly introducing the breed to

of previous Ambassador Award honorees, including Neil and Norma Hinck, who received the inaugural award in 2009, along with last year’s winners Diane Robson and Mike Stetson. As creators of the Blazer Horse breed, the honors presented to the Hincks were long overdue. Robson, who recently competed with Smokey in the nationally televised “America’s Favorite Trail Horse” series, was honored for her efforts to promote Blazers in North Idaho


and nation-wide. Stetson has also made valuable contributions as an active volunteer in many events and also as writer for the quar- terly Blazer Times. For more information visit www.abha.com.
