My favorite phone call all year

Every year at this time, I get to make one of my favorite phone calls of the year.

I always get to notify and congratulate the current year’s recipient of the Zane Schulte Award. This is an award in honor of our son. It’s given to a professional trainer in the National Cutting Horse Association. It awards character, respect by peers, contribution to the industry, and excellence in the arena.

This year the award will be given to Scott Amos. Scott, on behalf of the Award committee, “Congratulations! You’re such a worthy recipient. You inspire us all!”

I want to share what I thought as I reflected on Scott and the meaning of the award this week. That’s the subject of today’s video.
