NOTE- The New Andrew Biebuyck Memorial Trophy Description should read as follows:
Andrew Biebuyck Memorial Trophy
The Andrew Biebuyck Memorial Trophy is awarded to the overall highest point earner from Dressage Training Levels I, II, III and Reining Pattern #1 and #2. This trophy honors the memory of Andrew Biebuyck, a member of the Paint Creek Valley 4-H Horse Club. Drew was an accomplished equestrian and competitive rider in the Oakland County 4-H Open Horse Show Circuit and Oakland County Fair. In 2009 when Drew won both Obvious Prince Memorial Reining Trophies, he also placed very well in his dressage classes. His mare, Stormy’s Impression, aka “Norm,” still had her dressage braids in during the reining classes. In memory of Drew and Norm’s versatility, this award is designed to encourage young riders to try both dressage and reining, which have many similarities, in spite of their superficial differences. This revolving award is donated by the Oakland County 4-H Horse Council, family, and friends.
