Nominations sought for Sir Colin Spedding Award
The award will be formally presented at the National Equine Forum in March 2025.
The closing date is 31 July.

The National Equine Forum (NEF) is seeking nominations for the 2025 Sir Colin Spedding Award.

The award, named in honour of the NEF's founding chairman, celebrates unsung individuals and organisations which have made a difference in the equine world.

The winner will be invited to attend next year's National Equine Forum, to be held in March, where the award will be presented.

Since the award was introduced in 2013, winners have included Simon Curtis, for his work on the development of corrective farriery, Charlotte Thornycroft, for her role in helping horses affected by the war in Ukraine, and Andrew Waller, in recognition of the collective work of the Animal Health Trust's Infectious Disease Group.

Jane Holderness-Roddam, chair of the the Sir Colin Spedding Award sub-committee, said: “If you know an exceptional individual or organisation working within the equestrian sector who deserves recognition for their endeavour we would love to hear from you.
“The Sir Colin Spedding Award is one of the most coveted accolades within the equestrian sector and we are proud to have been able to celebrate so many extraordinary individuals, organisations and achievements since its inception in 2013. We look forward to adding to our outstanding roll call in 2025.”

Nominations can be made on the NEF website until noon on 31 July 2024.
