Betty Thorpe passed away in December of 2015. We will never forget her 10 years with us. Betty was here for the first horse trial as our dressage judge. How I wish she could be here for the next 10 years. We miss her and to honor her, the Betty Thorpe Award will be awarded annually to the dressage volunteer who best exemplifies Betty Thorpe's kindness, strength, willingness, and generosity of spirit. 2017's award was presented to Jacqui Ray who volunteered to scribe for us 8 times this year at MDHT and is always there to step in to help when needed. We couldn't think of a person more rewarding to receive the award in 2017!!
