Margo Leithead Cornerstone Award Established

August 9, 2013 (Lexington, KY) – The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. is proud to announce the creation of the Margo Leithead Cornerstone Award for Excellence in Horse Management. This prestigious award recognizes teams that best demonstrate excellence in Horse Management during competition. It includes all disciplines during Pony Club Championships events held each year, starting in 2014.

The award is named for Margo Leithead, who has been a driving force in her many years of her involvement with Pony Club. She was a founding member of Greenwich Pony Club in Connecticut and Keystone Pony Club in Pennsylvania. At the local level, she did everything from Chief HM judge, rally organizer, coach, instructor, examiner, and club treasurer.

Margo then went on to serve as Regional Supervisor of the Metropolitan Region from 1970-1974, and as Vice RS of the Eastern Pennsylvania Region from 1987-1996. She served on the National Advisory and Nominating Committees and was the Chair in 1996. She was Vice President of Regional Administration from 1998-2000, and First VP and Annual Meeting Chair from 2001-2002. From 2003-2009 Margo attended and presented at 18 of the 23 USPC Leaders Camps held throughout the country. Her favorite presentation was on Therapeutic Communication. Margo ultimately served as USPC President from 2004-2006.
