"you're getting my mom's award by the way"
Susan Jane Anstey was a valiant champion of Canada's development in international sport and recognized that the ride to the podium for Canadian competitors begins in the barns and paddocks at home.

As that rare combination of publisher and working journalist, Susan Jane provided a dedicated Canadian journalistic presence at World Equestrian Games and Olympic Competitions from 1984 through to Greece in 2004. Through her work with the FEI Media Advisory Committee and her leadership of the International Alliance of Equine Journalists, Susan Jane built a bridge that linked Canadian horse sport to the rest of the world.

Through publications such as Horse Sport, Horse-Canada and Canadian Thoroughbred, Susan Jane provided a national voice for the Canadian equestrian community, and a forum for a national dialogue on the issues that have affected and defined our sport. In memory of Susan Jane, and in recognition of her invaluable contributions to Canadian equine interests, Equine Canada will present the Susan Jane Anstey Media Award to an exceptional individual who has delivered outstanding media coverage that served to enhance the image of Canadian equine interests to the Canadian public. All submissions must have been published or aired for the first time between December 1, 2007, and October 31, 2008.

Equine Canada is excited to once again present our Annual Awards Gala. Featured as part of the Equine Canada Annual Convention, this prestigious event will be held Saturday, February 7, 2009 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Ottawa.
