Speech Below:


"Hi Everyone, I have been asked to present the Amateur Impact Award. This is a very cool new award because it’s a perfect example of ERA’s effort to broaden it's reach and embrace all levels of the sport. It’s not just about the high profile riders at the top of their game - it’s about everyone who participates in Eventing.This award goes to an amateur involved in Eventing who excels in various roles that contribute to the sport.Audrey Wiggins embodies the full definition of the new Amateur Impact Award. She has been an amateur Eventing competitor for over 20 years, served as the joint Area II Young Rider Coordinator from 2007 through 2013, and is a current member of the Carolina Horse Park’s Board of Directors.These are Audrey’s specific contributions as a volunteer, competitor and leader:
In the vein of moving the sport forward, Audrey represents the type of person needed to support Eventing today. So, the Amateur Impact Award goes to Audrey Wiggins."
