The HorseAid Anna Sewell Humanitarian Award™. This non-competitive award is given to recognize organizations that are true humanitarians. It is the highest accolade that HorseAid may award to an organization, and is only bestowed on an occasional basis, when warranted. This very rare accolade has only been awarded twice since 1984.
The Anna Sewell Award's namesake is the author of Black Beauty, the popular fiction novel published in 1877 which was the first to tell the truth about horse abuse through the use of anthropomorphism. Anna Sewell's Black Beauty is truly the font of all horse rescue organizations. This honour was last accorded in 1993 to Brooke Hospital (England).
The I.G.H.A. Legion of St. Francis Award™. This non-competitive award is the highest accolade the IGHA may bestow upon, and award to, an individual. It is awarded for exceptional acts benefiting horses and ponies and is only bestowed on an occasional basis, when warranted. This very rare accolade has only been awarded five times since 1975. This honour was last accorded in 1999 to Sharon Johnston (U.S.A.).
