2020 Ellen Walker Junior/ Young Rider Sportsmanship Award Recipient - Genevieve Rohner

Congratulations to Genevieve Rohner on receiving the Ellen Walker Junior/ Young Rider Sportsmanship Award!

The Ellen Walker Junior/ Young Rider Sportsmanship Award recognizes outstanding sportsmanship amongst USD JR/ YR members. Recipients are those who exhibit these characteristics that exemplify positive sportsmanship principles such as good judgement, integrity, kindness, perseverance, respect, responsibility, and self-discipline.

Genevieve spent over 60 hours this year volunteering at a barn where horses and psychotherapy are combined. She cared for horses, goats, chickens and took care of barn chores. She also helped with the owner’s two young girls. She also competed at the 2020 U.S. Para Dressage Championships in Tryon, NC in October. She was the only child there, and rode two beautiful tests on a borrowed horse. She won both of her classes and received scores from 65-69% from three international judges, after only practicing on the borrowed horse for 3 hours total in the previous few days to competition. She exhibited wonderful behavior around all the elite riders, coaches and USEF staff. We are pretty proud of her!
