The ETAA is pleased to announce the inaugural Brittney Anning Business Excellence Award.

When she received the devastating news that she had melanoma that had spread, she didn’t let that stop her. She continued to develop different ways of running her business, conducting clinics, selling products and working as the ETAA Admin Officer when she became unable to massage horses.
