Aw Shucks – WegWag Wins Award!

Dr. Pearec Lyons congratulates Marti McGinnis for receiving an A+ Award for her video

No way! It appears as though yours truly, your very own little WegWag seems to have won the A+  award in the broadcasting category for a video I created to help grow excitement for the WEG!  Alltech – the title sponsor of the whole big horse party – initiated a set of awards to help kick start coverage throughout the global equine news community. Entries were open to members of American Horse Publications (AHP) and the International Alliance of Equestrian Journalists (IAEJ).

They asked a team of independent experts to evaluate the entries and it seems the video shown right here in our little down-home blog took top honors for the first set of winners! (2 sets one pre-WEG, the other to come or post-WEG). This video features footage I’ve taken over the several years I’ve been playing horses with my friends here so I like to think this win reflects more about them, what they’ve taught me and the love we all share for our equine friends and teachers.

I sorta feel like I just won a gold medal. 🙂

So here it is again for those who missed it the first time:
