Last week, it was announced that Annabel’s Deliciously British will be sponsoring classes at Horse of the Year Show 2024. I am delighted to be able to sponsor the children’s Lead Rein and First Ridden Show Pony classes, and the Mini Show Pony of the Year Championship.
It’s a privilege to be a part of bringing equestrian competition at such a high level to children of such a young age. Showing was where I started, and it was a fantastic grounding to understanding horsemanship, competition, and work ethic.
As the world, equestrianism and competition evolves it is crucial that we strive to be more inclusive. And for that reason, there will be two new awards for 2024 in the Lead Rein and First Ridden Classes. The “Show Rider of the Year” in both classes will be judged on ringcraft and riding ability allowing the rider to shine in their own right for their hard work and dedication to improving their own ability.
In a world where personal development and education is paramount, we should celebrate this right from the start giving the incentive for the next generation to strive for more and in turn reap the rewards.
Grandstand Media, organisers of Horse of the Year Show have said: “We are thrilled to have Annabel’s Deliciously British join us as a sponsor of the Mini Show Pony of the Year, and we are delighted to be working with them to introduce two new awards for the competitors in this class for 2024. We look forward to developing this new relationship over the coming years and look forward to welcoming them to the show in October 2024 where we are celebrating our 75th Anniversary of the show.”
Horse of the Year Show will take place from 9th – 13th October 2024, so save the date or buy your tickets here.
I can’t wait to see many of you there!
