The Haddon Training British Grooms Awards 2018

Nominations are now closed.

With the every increasing media coverage facilitating the rising awareness of the important role grooms play in their rider’s success and none more so than ever of those who supported the Team GBR riders at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, Tryon together with those who supported the Pony, Children Junior and Young Rider European teams as quite rightly they played such a big part in the overall success of Team GBR.

Nevertheless, so many grooms do not receive the acknowledgement they deserve for their hard work and commitment to the equines in their care, however, through the Haddon Training sponsored British Grooms Awards this provides an opportunity for these often unsung heroes of the equestrian industry to be recognised and rewarded.

“Whilst the continuing media coverage is excellent in raising awareness of the valuable role grooms do play, particularly at elite level, I hope by sponsoring the British Grooms Awards it demonstrates the importance that is placed on all grooms who are the backbone of the equine industry and who very rarely get identified and recognised for all their hard work.” Chris Hewlett, Managing Director of Haddon Training
