Former Olympian and U.S. Chef d’Equipe David O’Connor will present the second annual $5,000 Charles Owen Award to United States Equestrian Federation’s (USEF) high-performance eventing riders. Top riders including Olympians Boyd Martin, Philip Dutton and Buck Davidson are regular competitors at the trials.

O’Connor is a member of the U.S. Eventing Hall of Fame and was named Chef d’Equipe of the U.S. eventing team in 2013. “I’m delighted to present this award to these top riders who are role models not only as gifted equestrians but for setting important safety standards in the sport,” O’Connor said.

Charles Owen, the leading British helmet maker for more than 100 years, last year donated $15,000 to create a three-year award to recognize a person or team who has made a significant contribution to highlighting safety in the sport.
