NOMINATE your favourite tackshop, feed merchant or equestrian mail order and internet retailer for a prestigious national award and you could win a saddle.

The South Essex Insurance Brokers (SEIB) Retailer of the Year award is one of a series of 2009 British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) Business Awards to be presented next February.

The awards will be judged in three categories — large and small tackshops, plus internet and mail order retailers.

Nominations can be made at www.retaileroftheyear.org.uk and will close on
8 December. All entrants will go into a free prize-draw to win a £299 Wintec saddle.
