USEA Recognized Horse Trials

Janet Mitchell Award
In honor of longtime boarder and friend of Course Brook Farm, this award recognizes the best scoring Preliminary Level rider. This prize includes a commemorative platter, the winner's name on a perpetual plaque at Course Brook Farm and a $150.00 cash prize.
Janet was one of a group of boarders who, many years ago, initiated the concept of eventing at Course Brook Farm when they literally took to the woods and began clearing trails and making a path that would one day become our cross country course. Janet and her husband Jerry were there from the start. They volunteered at our very first recognized horse trials and could often be seen ringside as show jump timers unless Janet was competing in which case Jerry was her able groom.
