A Dallas horse has been named 2nd Level Morgan Horse of the Year by the United States Equestrian Federation. Morgan gelding Hermès, owned by Cindy Becker of Heath, TX, received the prestigious award after Black Star Sport Horses trainer Jessica Blackmon-White won a world title on him at the Grand National & World Morgan Horse Show last fall.
“I’m so proud of Hermès,” Blackmon-White says of the champion. “He absolutely deserves this. Cynthia has an exceptional horse! It’s an honor to ride him.”
Black Star Sport Horses head trainer and owner Lisa Blackmon adds, “I am so pleased with everything my daughter Jessica has accomplished with Hermès! Cindy raised this horse and had very high hopes for his success. It was an honor that she trusted Jessica and I with her wonderful horse and it really paid off. Jessica and Hermès have a great relationship; he loves to work for her. And for me, they are a great team to coach. It’s been a lot of fun for both of us exploring the Morgan breed. We look forward to seeing what Hermès will accomplish in the future.”
