USDF Announces 2008 Youth Volunteer of the Year

Lexington, KY (November 6, 2008) - The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that Kassidy Peacock of Helotes, TX, has been selected as the recipient of the 2008 USDF Youth Volunteer of the Year Award, presented by The Paddock Saddlery and sponsored by the USDF Youth Executive Board. This prestigious award honors one outstanding youth volunteer who has contributed on a national and local basis to the USDF and dressage.

As the recipient of this award, Kassidy’s name will be engraved on a perpetual trophy, housed in the Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame, which was donated by the Akin family of Warwick, NY, in honor of Lendon Gray. She will also receive a $500 scholarship provided from funds raised through the Youth Executive Board Silent Auction held annually at the Adequan/USDF Annual Convention, and a $250 gift certificate donated by The Paddock Saddlery.

In 2007-2008, Kassidy volunteered a total of 111 hours at numerous events, including the 2008 USDF/Platinum Performance North American Junior and Young Riders’ Dressage Championships, The Houston Dressage Society Spring and Summer Shows, The Alamo Dressage Association’s Spring Shows I and II, the Stephen Clarke/Linda Zang Symposium sponsored by the Houston Dressage Society, and the 2008 Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF Festival of Champions. Kassidy was nominated based on her remarkable “willingness and politeness that are refreshing for a fourteen year old,” and as one who “is willing to help anyone at any time.”
