Do you Know Someone who Deserves to be Recognized?
Sport History: Fun Facts From the USHJA Wheeler Museum
Getting to Know EAP Clinician Cynthia Hankins 

Cynthia Hankins, one of this summer’s clinicians at the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund/USHJA Emerging Athletes Program Regional Training Sessions, is widely recognized for winning the AHSA Medal finals in 1977 and for her national and international success with jumpers. Did you know that Cynthia’s winning record in the show ring started at a much earlier age? Cynthia took top prize in Leadline at Devon two times, at ages three and four. Her first Medal class win came at age 12 on a 13.2 1/2 hand pony, and she qualified for the Medal and ASPCA Maclay finals that year, finishing fifth in the Maclay. Cynthia’s story was featured in ”Equitation: A Foundation for Life” at the USHJA Wheeler Museum.
