The American Saddlebred Museum is pleased to announce Emily Brown of Louisville, Kentucky is recipient of the Keith Bartz Impact Scholarship Award. The scholarship committee chose Brown from an outstanding group of nominees. The scholarship celebrates the life of Keith Bartz, who focused his time, talent and resources on building the American Saddlebred Museum and the celebration of the American Saddlebred Horse. The recipient is an individual who exemplifies the same character and enthusiasm for our breed.

Brown has been involved with the American Saddlebred for over 10 years competing in Academy divisions and 4H including the Mounted Horse Drill Team and Horse Bowl. In addition, she has worked as a camp counselor at the Louisville Equestrian Center for regular summer camps as well as HOOFKY camp, which reaches children who would not typically have the opportunity to experience horses. She is known as an outstanding teacher and mentor to young riders, encouraging excellence in horse management and riding. Her community charitable work includes involvement with the Misfit Toys Rescue Division, a Kentucky non-profit that helps locate and repurpose rescue Saddlebreds. She has worked with that organization in many capacities from horse care to the promotion and marketing of the charity.

Brown attends the University of Kentucky with a double major in Equine Business and Business Management. In addition to her studies, she competes with the UK Saddle Seat ISSRA team. Her work with the American Saddlebred and the community in general shows her enthusiasm for the breed and for the wellbeing of the community as a whole.
