The Elberta Honstein Memorial Grant (Retired)
The Elberta Honstein Memorial Grant has been retired (2023). Beginning in 2017, it was offered to all AMHA members under the age of 21 to further their equine education, skills, or proficiency, and/or their academic education.
Elberta-Honstein and Roy-El Morgan Farm have a rich and long history with the Morgan breed. Roy-El Morgan Farm was founded in the early 1960′s by Roy and Elberta Honstein. They passed on their love of Morgans to their daughter, Debbie, and then to Debbie’s daughters, Elberta Seybold and Eriene Seybold-Smythe.
Thank you to the family and friends of Elberta Honstein for making this grant available. It has made a difference in the lives of the exceptional (and appreciative) young members listed below. We will always remember Ms. Honstein.
