British Breeding Awards Dinner
Our annual breeders’ awards dinner and ceremony is held in January each year at a five star central London hotel. Breeders whose horses have had competition success in the past year come up to receive their prizes and share in an evening of celebration of British breeding. This event is a key date for fundraising in support of the Foundation’s charitable objectives.
The 23rd Awards Dinner will be held on Saturday 11th January 2020 at the Leonardo Royal Hotel, London (pictured above left), starting with a Drinks Reception sponsored by Competition Stallions at 6.15pm, followed by the Dinner and Awards Ceremony at 7.45pm. Master of Ceremonies will again be Harry Meade (pictured above right), one of Britain’s leading event riders.
The Awards Dinner is in celebration of the achievements of British breeders, their horses and riders and amongst the awards presented on the evening are:
Competition Disciplines’ (BE, BD and BS) Young Horse Awards
Sports Pony Studbook Society Award
