Horse of the Year
Hall of Fame Inductees
Each year at the National Academy Championship Horse Show, one horse is selected as the “Academy Horse of the Year.” And that horse goes down in our Academy Hall of Fame. Do you know of an academy horse that deserves to be honored and recognized as “Horse of the Year?” Applications for Horse of the Year are now available.
