The Kris McConnell Award is presented annually by the Colorado Hunter Jumper Foundation. The award is given to a CHJA member who has provided outstanding service to a Charitable Organization. The award includes a donation to the charity in honor of the recipient.
CHJF was proud to present the 2019 Kris McConnell Award to Kris Nixon. Kris is known to many of you as a trainer, judge and an active CHJA member. Kris also volunteers countless hours at the Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue. Reading through the recent Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue newsletter, you will find example after example of her work. From picking up a load of mini’s in Iowa, to rescuing a horse and owner with a broken-down trailer at a truck stop, to caring for and training the rescued horses, she never stops giving of her time, energy and expertise.
Congratulations Kris and thank you for all of your work at Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue!
