The USEA Year End Awards ceremony at the Annual Meeting and Convention is always an emotional time when the eventing family comes together to celebrate the achievements of the past year and honor those who have contributed so much to the sport. This year was no exception.
One of the most notable moments was when USEA President Carol Kozlowski delivered a heartfelt speech as she described Mike Winter’s passion for eventing and his efforts in furthering the sport through governance. Tuning in via live stream, Mike was able to witness the standing ovation for his service to the sport, for which he was honored with the USEA President’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
