- Rider of the Month - All riders participating in the Sea 2 Shining Sea program for 2021 season have agreed to have their names put in a hat for a random drawing to determine Rider of the Month. Each month a different name will be drawn. A write-up of the Rider of the Month will go in The Icelandic Horse Quarterly. This is to help the Sea 2 Shining Sea participants get to know each other better.
