Current categories recognized by the Jump Canada Hall of Fame include Builder – Individual; Builder – Organization; Pony; Hunter; Jumper; Rider; Sponsor; Media; Official; Trainer/Coach; and Team/Event. The nomination criteria for potential Hall of Fame candidates are available on the Jump Canada Hall of Fame website by going to www.equinecanada.ca/halloffame/index.php and clicking on ‘Nominations.’
“The nomination process gives our membership an opportunity to share their stories about those who have made our sport special, and to put forward suggestions for future inductees,” said Mark Samuel, Chair of the Jump Canada Hall of Fame.
Submissions for consideration for the 2011 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony are due to the Nomination Committee by June 15, 2011. The committee will then deliberate and will announce the 2011 Inductees from among all Nominations received to date. Nominations not approved for induction in 2011 will be retained and considered in future years.
Profiles of previous inductees, as well as photo galleries of past five years, can be found at www.equinecanada.ca/halloffame/index.php.
