Chloe Bowler, our Corporate Fundraising Manager, said: “The AHT Equestrian Awards has become a notable event in the equestrian calendar, and is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the outstanding equestrian achievement our British equestrians continue to deliver. For our charity it also plays a very important role; raising vital funds to ensure we can continue to fight disease and injury in horses.
