Dennie Holmbeck Memorial Scholarship 

February 04, 1954 – December 31, 2019

Scholarship Information

        In honor of our amazing friend, Dennie Holmbeck, 

Heart and Hooves Horsemanship is awarding (2) $250 scholarships for the 2024 H&H year. 

 Dennie was the first person to sign up for the very first clinic H&H offered in 2014. From there, she became Michelle’s support, inspiration and cherished friend.  She was willing to help with anything and everything. 

 Her beloved horse, Pecos, still is an active part of the H&H family.

 Dennie would spoil Pecos and was often caught giving him kisses on the nose. (Shh don’t tell Michelle).

        Dennie had a bright soul and would befriend anyone anywhere, especially if it involved her love for horses. 

 We, at H&H, always talk about chasing our dreams and how everyone is family; Dennie was the perfect example of what H&H is all about. She had many great accomplishments and thought very highly of H&H and her extended family. She was the best role model with the kindest heart. Her natural aura was radiating and contagious.

        We miss our Angel, Dennie, but her spirit is always with us.

 In honor of Dennie, may we all find what gives us joy and go there. May we all be kind, supportive, and loving to one another.

 May we all keep chasing our dreams.
