When asked about his career showing and the award Adam Steinbrick said:
“I have been around Belgian Draft Horses my whole life. In early childhood I traveled with my parents and family for several years to numerous county fairs in Ohio & Michigan. During this time, I grew up with my life-long friend, Jason Honsberger. Jason has helped me over the years showing our horses in halter and is a huge part of the success of Lighthouse Acres. Traveling with my family in recent years, especially my son Carson, who has been able to attend all the shows with me has created MEMORIES that will last a lifetime. My good friend JT has definitely been an asset to the team and always creates an enjoyable atmosphere. It has been an absolute pleasure to team up with and work with E-D Belgians. I could never thank them enough. A SPECIAL THANKS goes to all the other individuals (there has been so many) who have graciously lent a helping hand over the years. None of this could have been done without you. My family and I feel extremely blessed to be a part of this wonderful Belgian Draft Horse family!!!”
