Harry Meade picked up the Jemima Johnson Memorial Trophy, for the rider who has not been awarded the senior Union flag and epitomizes the spirit of eventing, at the British Eventing ball last Saturday night.

The 24-year-old has never finished outside the top 25 in five four-star runs with Midnight Dazzler and had his best result at Burghley this year, where he was eighth and was the only person to finish on his dressage score (pictured).

After receiving his award from Lucinda Green, Harry was spotted showing some energetic moves on the dance floor. More than 600 party-goers attended the ball at the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull.

Oliver Townend took the Tony Collins Memorial Trophy for the British rider gaining the most points. And Edward and Robert Nicholson picked up two awards as owners and breeders of Oliver’s top ride Flint Curtis.

Jo May won the Martin Whiteley Trophy for the British rider gaining the most points on one horse who has never been entitled to wear any Union Jack badge and who has not previously won this trophy. Jo finished fourth at Luhmühlen and 25th at Burghley this year on Faere Vision, the only horse she events.
