They come from all different walks of life, but something 13 horse trainers have in common is the fact that they are making a positive impact in their communities through their work with horses and beyond.
Representing 10 different states, 13 trainers have been nominated for National Horse Trainer of the Year, an award presented annually by Greatmats. Among them are Bryanna Larson of Pony Tales Refuge and Rehab in Colfax and Sharlyn Fellenz of Mytalisha’s Dream Riding Center in Eau Claire.
From Nov. 16 to 30, voting will be open to the public on Greatmats Facebook page as they weigh in on which two trainers will be named 2017 finalists for the award. The winner will receive horse stall mats, or a cash option, from Greatmats, which is in its third year of hosting the contest.
