I 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!
