Horse & Hound readers have been asked to help choose the winners of the Animal Health Trust’s (AHT) UK Equestrian Awards.

The AHT awards celebrate 20 years of the recognition of excellence in the equestrian world this year, so all the nominees have shown an outstanding contribution to the sport since the 1980s.

Twenty-four individuals and organisations have been chosen to compete in five categories — show jumping, dressage, eventing, special and voluntary.
