[RC] Fw: Performance Awards Press Release - Milinda Ellis

Hello Ridecamp!

The Cleveland Bay Horse Society of North America is pleased to announce
expansion of its Performance Awards program to include Distance Riding (both
endurance and competitive trail).  Although this breed is not traditionally
seen on the trails (or many other places, due to its rarity), there are
Cleveland Bays competing successfully in endurance both here and abroad.  If
you know of anyone who owns a horse with Cleveland Bay breeding, please pass
this information along to them.

The following press release *should* also be published soon  in Endurance
News, Hoof Print, Western Horseman, Practical Horseman, Chronicle of the
Horse, and numerous other national and regional pulbications.  Thanks for
helping get the word out!

The Cleveland Bay Horse Society of North America announces a new awards
program for 2003.    Instead of one overall versatility award, purebreds and
partbreds (sport horses) will compete for year end awards in several
disciplines including:  Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Distance Riding,
Hunter/Jumper, Western, Sport-horse In Hand and Versatility.

The Cleveland Bay is the oldest established breed of English horse. The
first studbook was published in 1884, the breed is listed as endangered, but
is making a come back .   Many modern European warmblood were developed from
Cleveland Bay stock.   Notable Cleveland enthusiasts are HRM Queen Elizabeth
II, HRH Prince Philip, and the late Alexander MacKay-Smith.   Partbreds
excell at many disciplines including dressage, showjumping, driving and
eventing including a past Burghley CCI**** champion.
