Edited Press Release
Since its inception in 2002, there have been many worthy nominees for the Equine Industry Vision Award. Anyone is eligible to be nominated, re-nominated, or to nominate a candidate for the award. Nominees may include individuals and/or organizations. Candidates may be considered for a single outstanding visionary achievement or for sustained outstanding contributions that have made a profound impact on the equine industry.
The 2015 Equine Industry Vision Award will be announced during a breakfast ceremony sponsored by Zoetis on June 19, 2015, during the AHP Seminar in San Antonio, Texas. The names of award recipients are engraved on the Equine Industry Vision Award Perpetual Trophy on display at the Zoetis offices.
