The Animal Health Trust UK Equestrian Awards will once again be celebrating equestrian excellence on Wednesday 31 October and is excited to announce a new sponsor of its Dressage Award. This year, Devoucoux Saddles will, for the first time, join the AHT to mark the achievements of riders, owners, trainers and horses from the world of equestrianism.

In addition, this year marks the 30th anniversary of the Animal Health Trust UK Equestrian Awards.  Since starting in the late 1980s the awards have grown in size and stature into one of the highlights of the equestrian calendar. Attracting high-profile equestrian guests such as Sir Nick Skelton, Spencer Wilton and the GB eventing team ,the fundraising event aims to increase awareness and funds for the veterinary and scientific charity, which works extensively to help keep horses fit and healthy, and most importantly, protected from disease and injury.

Kevin Clements, of the AHT, said: “We’re really excited to have Devoucoux Saddles join us this year as an award sponsor, in this our 30th anniversary year, at the Dorchester Hotel in London.  There’s so much to celebrate in the equestrian world and we feel having Devoucoux Saddles involved with our flagship event will add even more style to the Awards”.

Pippie Polson, of Devoucoux Saddles, said: “Devoucoux is wholeheartedly dedicated to the successful partnership between horse and rider.  So to be able to sponsor an award which recognises the very best partnerships in the world of dressage is very exciting for us”.
