2012 Sportsmanship Award
"Kaitlyn qualified for and competed at the National Pony Finals, where she was awarded a sportsmanship award after displaying an exceptional attitude in success and in failure. Kaitlyn has earned herself quite a following by regularly posting inspirational videos, and encouraging other aspiring young riders to quite simply never give up. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of comments intimating that her videos and text descriptions are the reason that they continued riding, and that they did not give up. The amount of young riders, who claimed that Kaitlyn changed the way that they thought or rode, just because she told them to keep pushing on, was astonishing."
