The Cecil Hinkle, Jr., award was given for the first time in honor of the late Junior Hinkle, who passed away Saturday, December 12, 2015.
Junior raised, trained and showed Tennessee Walking Horses who, over a lifetime, owned five World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horses. He was president of the West Virginia Horseman’s Association and a lifetime member of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association.
Cecil Hinkle Jr. Field, on which the annual Farmer’s Day horse show is held, remains in his family.
Several of Junior’s family members presented the award to Morrison for Saturday’s win including his wife, Mary Ann Campbell Hinkle; two of his three daughters, Ann Hinkle Jameson and Betsy Hinkle Johnson; grandchildren, Mary Beth McCormick Hinkle and Campbell Johnson; and great-granddaughters Ava and Lily.
