2013 AERCNC: 1st Place Awards and Junior Completion Awards Created by Diane Dann and sponsored by Belesemo Arabians


Northwest endurance rider Diane Dann has created the awards, sponsored by Belesemo Arabians, for the winners of the 50 and 100-mile AERC National Championships, and for the Junior completions in each distance. Each will receive a handmade mini-quilt of a horse.

"Quilting is something I had always wanted to do but didn't have the time," Diane said, "so I did lots of crafts, needlepoint, knitting and crochet for many years. Then in 2011 I got the bug, big time, and finally had some time and jumped in with both feet. Since then I have made 8 quilts ranging from king size to lap top, 4 table cloths of varying sizes, 2 wall hangings, 7 rag quilts, 3 table runners and a 3 different sets of placemats totaling 16 and have started to applique.

"I had been talking to Steph about making completion awards for any of her rides, as I just love to have projects to make, and she was the one who mentioned the National Championship."

Belesemo Arabians has a breeding program centers primarily on the tried and true Crabbet/Davenport bloodlines of Antez, Abu Farwa and Alla Amarward with a touch of Ferseyn, which are proven in the endurance, sport horse and competitive trail fields.
