Hall of Fame Awards: Recognizing great volunteers! The EOQHA has three awards that are pre-

sented annually to members who go that extra bit out of their way to help others or the club. These awards are presented annually at the ban- quet.

The Bill Borland Award, donated by the

Hitsman family, honours those who are always willing to help, go the extra mile and demon-

strate exceptional teamwork. The Goodwill Award, initially donated by

Bonnie Cameron and Dan Donohue, to an indi- vidual or family who contributes willingly and unasked to the EOQHA by helping out in any- way they can to make things run smoothly; be it handing out ribbons, helping with functions, set- ting up obstacles in the ring, or for social func-

tions, delivering shavings, or even cleaning out stalls. They volunteer and pitch in wherever and whenever needed. The Hall of Fame program was designed to rec-

ognize the people who have played a vital role in the development of the Eastern Ontario Quar- ter Horse Association.

CQHA appoints Team Canada Coach & Team Manager for 2018 AQHA Youth World Cup

(Calgary, AB - June 21, 2017) — - The city of Bryan/College Sta- tion, Texas, will host the next biennial American Quarter Horse Association’s Youth World Cup event to be held June 28 to July 8, 2018. This event, first held in Australia in 1986 as the International Youth Quarter Horse World Cup, has become one of the most prestigious equine competitions recognized world wide. It is a major initiative of the

CQHA to field a youth team for this competition which is held every two years. The CQHA Board of Directors is very pleased to announce that Della Cryderman of Murillo, Ontario and Karen Westerback of Thun- der Bay, Ontario have been ap- pointed as 2018 Team Canada Coach and Team Canada Man- ager, respectively. The CQHA is indeed fortunate to have such well-qualified candidates volun- teer their time, experience and re- sources to serve Team Canada in these capacities, as they were the Team Canada’s Coach and Team Manager, respectively, in 2008, 2012 and 2014.

Della Cryderman Della has been breeding,

training and showing Quarter Horses for over thirty years and presently owns and operates a equine training facility. Her focus for Cryderman Training Stables is to prepare horses and their ex- hibitors for national and interna- tional competition. While the majority of the horse/rider com- binations whom she coaches show at American Quarter Horse circuits, she also coaches several dressage and jumping horses/rid- ers. Cryderman has travelled and shared her knowledge with riders

who have committed to furthering their skills, and given many clinics rang- ing from first time riders to numerous youth and amateurs who became AQHA Superior Award winners, AQHA Champi- ons, AQHA Versatility Champions, All-Ameri- can Congress and AQHA World Show finalists. Cryderman’s daughter, Jessie Godin was a gold- medalist member of Team Canada while competing at the Youth World Cup hosted by Australia in 2004. Della coached Jessie to 4th place in Am- ateur Hunt Seat Equi-

tation during the 2016 AQHA World Championship Show. Cry- derman served as President of the Thunder Bay Quarter Horse Club for 15 years and as President of the North Superior Quarter Horse Council for 10 years.

Karen Westerback Karen has been involved with

Quarter Horses for approxi- mately 20 years and competes as an amateur on AQHA show cir- cuits in Canada and the U.S. She has achieved two AQHA Ama-

Masters and now serves as the President of the North Superior Quarter Horse Association. On June 24th, the

teur Superior Awards and is an AQHA Amateur Champion. Karen is employed as a Youth Services residential worker for youth who are at risk with the law, helping to develop therapeu- tic plans for release from custody. She has served her local Quarter Horse associations over the years as Secretary, Vice-President and Youth Advisor, and has been ac- tively involved in major fund- raising events and organizing. Recently, she has acquired new roles as a ring steward for several large AQHA show circuits in- cluding the Minnesota Corporate Challenge and the Bob Yanz
