A company that values history and legacy, Kensington Products is proud to be a sponsor of the American Hackney Horse Society (AHHS), and of its Youth Medallion Program.
The AHHS works tirelessly to preserve and promote the spectacular beauty and athleticism of Hackney horses and ponies. Magnificent in front of carriages, but valued for their versatility, the Hackneys are finally enjoying increased numbers after spending some time on the Horse Breed Endangered Species List.
The Youth Medallion Program allows exhibitors under 18 years of age to compete in local medallion classes which enables them to vie for the National Titles as well as scholarship awards. This program encourages youth involvement and enables them to acquire show ring skills and develop friendships while competing for the prestigious Youth Medallion National Finalist title at the UPHA American Royal National Championship in the following divisions:
- Pleasure Driving Pony/Horse
- Roadster Pony
- Roadster Pony/Horse Under Saddle
- Pleasure Pony/Horse Under Saddle
- Youth Hackney/Harness Combination
- Country Pleasure Driving
- Pleasure Driving Pony/Horse (Reinsmanship)
- Showmanship In-Hand Pony/Horse
“Kensington is very excited to be a sponsor of the Youth Medallion Program,” states Lisa Caldwell, Kensington’s Sponsorship Director. “We are proud to offer products that will protect the glorious coats of these fantastic horses, so that when they are removed, they can shine in the show ring and reach their potential.”
