LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Dec. 31–The 2009 U.S. Performance Horse Registry’s (PHR) Silver Stirrup Award winners have been announced.

The Dressage Sport Horse Breeding (DSHB) winner was Lisa and Jessica Dworkin’s Days Go By. Their homebred yearling is sired by Danone out of a former Silver Stirrup In-Hand Champion mare, Zejaluna (by Palmenhain). Karen Brame’s homebred Royalander (Royal Prince x Accolades) took home the DSHB Materiale award and Jessica Jenkin’s Andorra La Vella (Amethyst x Impressive Cowgirl) won the DSHB Mature Horse of the Year award.

Dressage continues to be very popular with PHR-registered horses. The 2009 season was very competitive and some of the standouts include: Janne Rumbough’s homebred Winnie Too (Gaucho III x Kristina); Kenneth Borden, Jr’s homebred Rashka (Raymeister x Tashika); Kai Handt’s NTEC Donar (D’Olympic x Dukoscha), and Lisa Froehlig’s Welfenprinz (Weltmeyer x Prioschka). One winner, Rose Noir 2, had a very memorable year. Her owner, Mary-Cameron Rollins, rode the beautiful black daughter of Royal Angelo I out of Ironesse to an individual gold medal at the Adequan FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships. She was also the winner of the 2009 Silver Stirrup FEI Junior/Young Rider of the Year Award.

The national and reserve champions will be recognized at the USEF annual meeting in Louisville, Kentucky on Thursday, Jan, 14. During the Silver Stirrup Awards, the PHR/USEF Leading Owner, Breeder, and Sires of the Year are also recognized.
