Initial Reactions from the industry.

It’s an absolutely marvelous idea. It will provide a motivating influence across the industry and the sport; in the breeding sector especially giving proper recognition to the contribution of breeders, something which has been lacking at this level until now.

Having organised the Showjumpers Club Annual Awards for a period of 10 years, I’ve always felt that it was a pity there was not one all-embracing awards system and event, covering all sectors of the sport and the industry. Anything that brings media and public attention to equestrianism and the equine industry is to be welcomed; I think this project is a very positive move!.

Delighted; it’s amazing that as with the ‘Go for Gold initiative from Goresbridge, such important developments come from within the industry, not from the ‘authorities’ or governing bodies
