2010 Events:
MALA Awards for 2010
MALA promotes the appreciation of our beautiful horses by encouraging and supporting Lipizzan owners to participate in regional and local (GMO) equestrian events. To recognize the dedication and hard work of Lipizzan owners on the East Coast and their horses, MALA has established a new annual awards program.

Each year MALA will offer a ribbon for the highest scoring Lipizzan and for the highest scoring young Lipizzan in each state on the East Coast.

Ribbons will be offered in the following categories:
  • Highest scoring Lipizzan in dressage, hunter jumper, western pleasure, driving, and breed shows. All shows under consideration must be rated. Applicants for awards must submit their horse/rider summary sheets from USDF and USEF.
  • Highest scoring young Lipizzan (5 years of age and under) will include in-hand as well as under saddle.
  • Ambassador award to any Lipizzan and rider that has gone above and beyond all others to promote the breed through activities or to educate the public.
Awards will be based on the highest single score rather than cumulative scores; a form is attached to apply for these awards.

Awards will be made in December, based upon performance for that preceding year.

In order to be considered for an award, a rider/owner must be a current (2010) MALA member. He/she must submit proof of the highest performance score within the same calendar year (January 1 - October 31) along with the entry form. All forms must be submitted to the Mid Atlantic Lipizzan Association c/o melanie Adams, 5157 Jolly Acres Road, White Hall, MD. 21161 by November 10, 2010.

States in the East Coast region inlcude: Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and maine.
