Equine Charity, The British Horse Society (BHS) has honoured the incredible winners of this year’s Annual Awards in a ceremony with BHS Ambassador Lizzie Greenwood-Hughes.

The awards programme celebrates the individuals and organisations who have gone the extra mile, making a huge impact on behalf of the charity and the equestrian world. The BHS’s volunteers, partners and supporters were recognised as shining examples of humanity, endurance and hard work across safety, education, access and welfare.

It was a memorable celebration, reflecting on how truly magical horses are for so many people, no matter their background, interests or experience.

Speaking at the event, BHS Chief Executive James Hick said: “This event is one of the year’s highlights for us as a charity, as we acknowledge and celebrate the incredible efforts of our volunteer community – which currently stands at more than 1,300. We also recognise the brilliant work of some of our partners, as well as a number of individuals who really have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

All their dedicated support is so important in helping to deliver our charitable work. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to continue to be by the side of the whole equestrian community and to ensure more people from all communities, can experience the true joy of horses.”
