Every year at the Adequan®/USDF Annual Convention, year-end award winners, champions, and high-score recipients are presented with perpetual trophies commemorating their achievements. Even beyond the significance of the awards, many of these trophies incorporate stunning original pieces of equine art. Have you ever wondered who created these works, and where they came from? Let’s give these artists and their beautiful pieces their due.
The playful horse depicted in Ohio-based artist Lynda Sappington’s statue is aptly named Frolic. The bronze, donated in 2006 by StallionExpo.com and Beverly Rapp, is the StallionExpo Perpetual Trophy, awarded to the Adequan®/USDF Dressage Sport Horse Breeding Breeder of the Year.
