Background:  In 2018, the Erin Agricultural Society established the Horse Heritage Hall of Fame. Its purpose is to celebrate Erin’s rich equine history and to recognize leaders within Erin’s horse community.  Since the early 1800’s horses have played a vital role in Erin, and they continue to contribute in a meaningful way to the local equine economic sector, recreation and country lifestyle.  The Hall of Fame awards is now an annual event, with winners being announced at the Erin Fair.
