A little bit about Mark

Mark Joel Bullington
November 7, 1955 - May 14, 2012


As the "Voice of the Northwest Miniature Horse Club" for over 20 years, Mark was not only the club's announcer but also an active member, Board Member and advocate for the miniature horse industry. His love for this club and it's members shone through his ability to make each and everyone feel important. Whether you won first or last in your class at a NWMHC Show, Mark had a way of making it sound like you were the most important person in the show to win an award. 


Our youth and amateur members were especially important to Mark. He supported all of their activities with their miniature horses. Being the emcee at the annual award banquet was a highlight of Mark's life, as presenting those awards to his "special" people enabled him to acknowledge each and every one of them personally. 

This award, established in Mark's name, will continue to recognize our youth and amateur members in a very special way, even long after he is gone.
