Hunter Holloway presented with M. Michael Meller Style Award
At 2021 National Horse Show
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The 138th Annual National Horse Show (NHS) took place at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park, bringing together some of the top international and national show jumping athletes.
Culminating on the final weekend of the horse show, the $213,300 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ CSI4*-W took place Saturday, November 6, showcasing some of the world’s top show jumping athletes. M. Michael Meller of MMM Horseman and QBS Equestrian are proud to support the famed horse show through the M. Michael Meller Style Award. According to MMM Horseman, this year’s style award was presented to Hunter Holloway.
The M. Michael Meller Style of Riding Award is presented each year to the international athlete who displays an exemplary style of riding as well as sportsmanlike conduct in and out of the ring in the FEI Jumping Division – someone who exemplifies what it means to be a true role model for our industry. According to MMM Horseman, Holloway was honored with the award by Lenore Phillips of Phelps Media Group on behalf of Meller ahead of the $213,300 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Lexington CSI4*-W.
“It is such an honor, and I have seen this award go to so many amazing riders. To be recognized and to receive this award is so special; it is really an honor,” said Holloway. “ I just try to be a good person. I do what I think is best for everyone around me and my horses. I try to treat everyone equally and make an effort to be friendly. I believe in treating people the way you want to be treated. Pepita Con Spita is definitely my leading horse right now. I have a couple of others that are very exciting. By mid-year next year, you will see a couple of new ones in the ring who will be quite special.”
“It was an honor and pleasure to award Hunter Holloway with the annual M. Michael Meller Style Award at the 2021 National Horse,” said Meller. “Hunter exemplifies the true meaning of style. She showcases true sportsmanship and love for the sport and horses. Hunter has a bright future ahead of her, and I look forward to continuing to watch her successes.”
The team at MMM Horseman along with Dennis Sisco and QBS Equestrian are now gearing up for the 2022 winter show season. According to MMM Horseman, the next M. Michael Meller Style of Riding Award will be presented during the Las Vegas National Horse Show in November. For more information about the Style Award and MMM Horseman, click HERE.
