Murr Family Scholarship

The Murr Family will be presenting a scholarship to a lucky young rider on Sunday night at the show!

CASHA is pleased to announce the formation of a new annual scholarship fund to benefit one of our active junior CASHA members each year, beginning in 2013. The Murr Family Scholarship Fund is offering a $500.00 scholarship for the purpose of encouraging continuing education for our CASHA junior members.  This scholarship is designed to reward our young members for their participation, dedication and service within our community.  This scholarship will be awarded to a member who is a junior or senior in high school, and who has shown in at least 3 local Saddlebred shows during the year for which they are applying.  Community service performed in areas besides the horse world also will be considered.  Financial need is not a requirement for this scholarship.  Funds will be paid directly to the school of the recipient’s choice prior to the beginning of the recipient’s first semester.  The recipient will be announced during Championship Night at the Denver Queen City Horse Show in July of each year.  Applications will be due by June 1st of each year.

Denver Queen City was the UPHA Chapter 19 National Honor Show for 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2018 and got votes for USEF Show of the Year in 2010 & 2012.

For the second year, we are honored to welcome our Technical Coordinator David "Tuffy" Owens
