Von Bluecher Award

Each year hundreds of volunteers make the CSDEA's programs possible. From the tack sale, to the horse shows, to the work of the committees and board of directors, the CSDEA relies on volunteers for all of its endeavors. At the annual banquet, we honor one of our outstanding volunteers with the Von Bluecher Award.
 
Since 1989, we have used this award to recognize and thank volunteers who have given untold hours of their time over many years to support dressage and eventing in our area. The recipient receives a traveling trophy and a Lifetime membership to the CSDEA.
 
Nominees must be current CSDEA members and cannot be past award winners or current elected members of the year's Board of Directors.
