The 2013 USEF Pegasus Awards were held at the annual meeting in in Louisville, Ky. this weekend, and many top equestrians were honored. Among the top winners of the weeekend were Beezie Madden and her 14-year old Dutch Warmblood, Simon. Beezie and Simon have had a whirlwind of a partnership, which was begun in 2011, notably helping the US secure the win at the $75,000 Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup in March. To that end, Beezie was named USEF Equestrian of the Year for 2013, her third time receiving the award. Simon was awarded USEF International Horse of the Year.
The other USEF Award recipients are:
Jimmy A. Williams Lifetime Achievement Trophy – Keith Bartz
2013 Junior Equestrian of the Year – Lillie Keenan
2013 National Horse of the Year – Brunello
