The American Horse Publications’ Equine Media Awards recognize excellence in writing, photography, design, advertising, websites, podcasts, and other material published each year.  The 2021 awards banquet was held in Irving, Texas.  After going virtual in 2020, and with a delay from May to September this year, the event resumed being in-person, with the fitting title of “Back In the Saddle” as the theme.  USDF was nominated for several awards for our magazine USDF Connection and our publications website, YourDressage.

USDF’s Senior Publications Coordinator Emily Koenig and USDF Connection editor Jennifer Bryant traveled to Texas for the awards.  Check out some photos they shared, as well as the awards USDF brought home, below!
