Awards and Honors

The international 2014 Equestrian Social Media Awards created the Equestrian Digital Awards to showcase digital excellence beyond social media, and UVM Extension national and state collaborations were recognized as top ten finalists in two categories. eXtension-Horses: Keeping Equestrians Educated is a top ten finalist for websites over 20K visitors, and uses a national team of experts encompassing state equine extension specialists, teaching and research faculty, county extension educators to create a research-based learning network. With more than 2,900 current participants in 18 online learning lessons, certificate courses (Equine Youth Safety and Equine Business Network), online webinars and over 230 educational video clips on the eXHorses YouTube channel, there is something for equine participants of all ages and levels of experience.  

The second Equestrian Digital Award was for the Public Service Announcement (PSA) “Mutual Respect May Save a Life” This statewide collaboration between The Vermont Horse Council, Vermont Farm Bureau, and UVM Extension was filmed and edited by Across the Fence personnel and has been distributed to television stations in at least seven states to date. This PSA also won the national 2013 Video Communications Award by the National Association of County Agriculture Agents Association. Equestrian Digital Award entries were judged by an international panel of equine media professionals based on content, eser experience, visual design and film quality, cross platform integration and overall experience.
