The Erica Raab Inspirational Award

Our friend, Erica Raab, passed away in 2009 knowing she had a great ride.

A vibrant horsewoman with an incredible zest for life, Erica was a fixture at our NYSHC Annual Fall Pleasure Ride located in Brookfield, NY.  In Erica's honor, the NYSHC presents an annual award to recognize horse and/or trail enthusiasts who demonstrate dedication, motivation, leadership, perseverance, altruism and inspires others.  The recipient receives the traveling Erica Raab Inspirational Perpetual Trophy as well as a personal memento to remain in their possession.  The beautiful glass pieces are hand painted by Equestrian Artist, Donna Raines from Springfield, Massachusetts.
