I am donating custom portraits for the Ambassador Awards in the hope of encouraging Highland owners to get out and introduce this wonderful breed to the North American public. Most people on this continent still have never even heard of, let alone seen, a Highland pony. I hope in the future other Highland pony enthusiasts will step forward to donate prizes for SHPSNA awards progams. If you have an idea for a specific award, or would like to donate a prize please let me know.
Wishing you a successful season with your Highlands in 2007.
