The Riley Dobson Horsemanship Memorial Award will be presented to a member of the Trillium Hunter Jumper Association who regularly demonstrates outstanding horsemanship and sportsmanship as well as the ability to overcome adversity. This award is designed to honour someone that embraces the ideals of this sport and touches all whom they meet.
Riley Dobson was an avid young equestrian who competed on both the Central West and South West circuits. He demonstrated many of the qualities we all aspire to have: Good sportsmanship, enthusiasm, joy while participating in the sport, and an unbounded love for learning. He was always a team player, a supportive son, and a fantastic friend to teammates and competitors alike. In his memory, this award has been created to honour an equestrian who demonstrates that something special, and touches everyone who they meet along the way.
