Wennberg Honored by IHSA with 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award

IHSA Western Coach Carla Wennberg was awarded the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual board meeting in Florida. The IHSA Lifetime Achievement Award began in 1993 to honor members who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, commitment, and exemplary service to the association.

Wennberg joins a long list of outstanding horsemen and women who have been recognized by IHSA for their selfless commitment to the organization. These include our own Director of Equestrian Programs, Peggy McElveen who earned the award in 2017.

“I was surprised to receive this award,“ said Wennberg. “I think of it in the same light as being a Professional Horseman in AQHA. All about giving back – at a regional, semifinal and national level.

Serving as a steward and providing horses helps the association enormously. I have served as the liaison for IHSA with AQHA and I think the organization needed that. I am just trying to help the association be better and better every year. I think that is why my colleagues voted for me this year.”

Previous winners are IHSA legends and Wennberg joins their ranks as someone who knows how to make a difference in the lives of young riders.
