"It was an honor to be selected as the 2015 AHP Student Award Winner. The AHP seminar was absolutely incredible. I not only met writers, editors, photographers, novelists, illustrators, and publishers in the equine industry I’ve admired for years, I also met up-and-coming talented staff for many equine magazines I love. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. All the session speakers had valuable information from social media marketing, improving your photography, and a special panel of speakers for the student members on careers in the industry. Everyone there had the same passion for horses and the amazing relationships we have with them through sport and lifestyle in every imaginable discipline."
