JDPsychology Groom of the Year Award 2014

ClothingI am delighted to be sponsoring the ‘Groom of the Year’ Award 2014, in connection with the South East Eventers League (SEEL). Nominations must be made by 1st November 2014 and a nomination form can be downloaded here.

Previously a working pupil for an international event rider, I am well aware of the many demands (early starts, plaiting, studding up, tack cleaning, lunging, dealing with riders/owners, having everything ready in the right place at the right time…and much more!) of grooming.

SEEL would love to receive nominations from any BE/SEEL registered riders who couldn’t do without their groom! Regardless of whether your groom is a professional who juggles getting five horses ready at events, or a loyal family member/friend who has gone beyond the call of duty to support you across the season; get in touch if you think your groom deserves recognition for the hard work they put in!

The award winner will receive a free ticket to the SEEL ball on 22nd November 2014, a trophy, and two 60-minute sport psychology sessions with Jo Davies. The sessions can be used by the prize winner, passed onto their rider, or used as a joint session if preferred!

Don’t forget to get your entry in by the 1st November 2014 deadline!
