Brigadier General Cole Trophy

Brigadier General John Tupper Cole was a true pioneer of dressage and eventing. He was a US Cavalry officer, his last mounted review in 1942. He was awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart medals. With the demise of the Cavalry, many Army officers helped to establish civilian equestrian sport, in particular, contributing to the development, operation and improvement of the USET. Cole was a USET Commander and judge. The trophy honoring his memory was donated in 1969.
