Nominate an outstanding groom for the NAF Five Star Groom of the Year award

This year’s Horse & Hound Awards, run in partnership with NAF, promise to be as exciting as ever, with 11 awards being presented at our glamorous gala dinner hosted at Cheltenham racecourse on Wednesday 4 December.

The entire equestrian industry would grind to a halt without our wonderful grooms. Their dedication, skill, sheer effort and love of equines shows in the incredible care they provide for their charges day and night.

“NAF is delighted to be sponsoring the NAF Five Star Groom of the Year at the 2019 H&H Awards because grooms are a vital part of a winning team,” said NAF’s Melissa Newman. “Their dedication, long hours and hard work are second to none so what better way to say “thank you!” than with this five star accolade.”

Previous winners of this award include:

  • 2018: Jane Felton, groom to Jonty Evans
  • 2017: E-J Eldridge, yard manager at Stallions AI breeding station
  • 2016: Alan Davies, groom to Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin
