National Equestrian Awards 2023

The horsescotland Awards provide the opportunity to thank the Scottish equestrian sector for their dedication and to recognise their achievements throughout the previous year.

Anthony Drew - horsescotland Chair

“ It was great to be able to once again celebrate the fantastic award winners at our 2023 National Equestrian Awards. The quality of the nominations this year gave the Board many challenges and made the process of deciding the winners very difficult. I want to thank all who took the time to submit the nominations and congratulate all those who were nominated. It was clear the impact you made. Grateful thanks must also go to RHASS for their sponsorship of the event. Our raffle and auction, which offered some excellent prizes kindly donated by various supporters of horsescotland, raised a superb total of £2375. This will be added to funds which help Member Bodies carry out projects through financial support from our Member Body Support Programme.”

Jim Warnock - RHASS Chairman

 

"We were absolutely thrilled to be the proud main sponsor of the National Equestrian Awards last week; it was a true celebration of excellence in the equestrian circuit. Congratulations again to all the winners who displayed exceptional talent, dedication, and passion for the equestrian industry.”
