Philla and Charlie Osborne Volunteer Award
Each year, CDA has the option to give a Volunteer of the Year Award for special service to CDA.
History: The award is named in honor of Philla and Charlie Osborne who donated hours and hours of service to CDA in the 80’s and 90’s. They were always found at the practice ring at shows (recognized and schooling) checking numbers and entries and letting riders know when they were “on deck”. Philla and Charlie also rode for many years with Vicki Hammers-O’Neil and today, Philla owns a horse that is being trained and competed by Vicki.
