Do you know an outstanding groom or employer? Well now is your chance to tell the world how brilliant you think they are.

The Haddon Training-sponsored British Grooms Awards 2019 provides an opportunity for these often unsung heroes of the equestrian industry, across all levels and sectors, to be recognised and rewarded.

The awards, which are organised by the British Grooms Association, believe in recognising brilliance, horsemanship, leadership, dedication and rewarding those individuals who go the extra mile.

This year's categories are:

  • The Haddon Training Groom Award
  • The Haddon Training Team GBR Groom Award
  • The Haddon Training Manager Award
  • The Haddon Training Apprentice Award
  • The Haddon Training Employer Award *NEW for 2019*

Judging will take place at the end of November with the experienced panel of Jane Holderness Roddam, Chris Hewlett and BGA Ambassador Alan Davies.

Alan Davies, elite groom to Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester said, “I am so pleased and honoured to be asked to judge. I am so proud that the grooms are getting this amazing recognition. I feel we have a very important role and there are so many grooms doing a fabulous job in the industry at all levels. I can't wait to see all the applications and read about all the fantastic work being done.”

The winners will be invited to London where they will be presented their prestigious Award at the glamorous British Horse Foundation Awards Dinner on Saturday 11th January 2020.
