Annual Awards

461

A glittering dinner was held at the Saddlers Hall for the 2016 EHOA Awards in November. Congratulations go to all the winners for some fantastic results this season. Thanks also go to our tremendous sponsors for their continued support for the awards and the dinner.

The Plum Rowland Award

Emily King was the winner of our OI under-21 points accumulator in 2016, the Plum Rowland award. Emily said:

“I feel extremely honoured and lucky to have won the Plum Rowland award. I had a fairly up and down 2016 season, but there were some huge highs and it’s fantastic that there is an award to recognised this. It’s very kind of Plum to have given this trophy, so I would like to extend my thanks once again… and I’ll be trying my hardest to retain it this year!”

The prize each year is £950 plus a training bursary of £500 to be taken with a trainer of the rider’s choice.

Congratulations to…
Tessa Mackenzie Green, organiser of Aldon for over 30 years, on her recent British Eventing Award, which is presented for outstanding contribution to the
sport.

Penny Issac won a box at Ascot in the competition kindly sponsored by Weatherbys. Penny, along with 10 friends enjoyed a fabulous days racing and commented “we had an absolutely super day and I still cannot believe that I won a competition – Ascot looked after us so well – just a memorable day for all the best reasons!” It does pay to enter competitions sometimes!
