2nd Annual Award - the Iole (pronounced eye ol') Taylor Memorial Trophy.  This trophy is in memory of Iole Taylor, born February 25, 1925, passed away November 9, 2019.  Iole Taylor (Mother,  Grandmother, Great Grandmother, equestrian, tennis player, animal lover, VP of the Arizona Bank, artist, and entrepreneur) was the catalyst that in 1939 ignited a passion for horses in four generations and led them to participate in equestrian sport as breeders, farm owners, pleasure riders, 4-H members, equestrians competing from local to international shows, and even one horse show producer :), spanning from Ohio, to Arizona, to Georgia, Kentucky, and Florida. 

This trophy will be awarded to a person that demonstrates "Grit, Grace, & Pluck", meaning a can-do spirit, a positive attitude, perseverance, grace, kindness, and respect to all, especially animals. The Iole Taylor Memorial Trophy will recognize an equestrian that approaches life as a joyful adventure and has the courage to try and learn new skills, and, is someone who demonstrates courage to continue despite obstacles.
