Starting in 2011, the Glenn C. Dowell Jr. family generously donated to the Walking Horse Trainers' Association Scholarship Fund. For the past two years, they have graciously donated $5,000 to help students in the walking horse industry further their education.

It was announced at the WHTA Horse of the Year Banquet that the Dowell family would be generously doubling that scholarship sponsorship to $10,000.

The Dowell family strongly believes that education is very important to the youth of our industry.
