The Pikeur Amateur Rider of the Year award acknowledges the rider who does not make their living from riding, training or competing horses, yet dedicates themselves to their passion.
“Pikeur/Eskadron is delighted to sponsor the Amateur Rider of The Year Award because amateur riders are the backbone of the equestrian industry and probably work harder than anyone else,” said a spokesman.
Previous winners of this award include:
- 2018: amateur event rider Katie Preston
- 2017: amateur event rider Alice Goring
- 2016: amateur dressage rider Claire Abel
