Time is running out for individuals to nominate hardworking grooms for the coveted Kuster BEF Groom award.
Entries must be in by 25 November for your groom to have a chance of winning a luxury five-night trip to Washington DC, plus two nights in the five star London Grange City Hotel, or runners-up prizes of weekend London shopping trips.
Frank Kuster of Grange Hotels sponsors the award and says: “Grooms are often the unsung heroes of the equestrian world and I want to recognise and reward their invaluable work.”
The competition is open to all grooms, whether from a local riding school or Olympic competitor’s yard. Repeat nominations from last year’s award are encouraged. A groom can be nominated by anyone, including him or herself.
Nomination forms are available from www.bef.co.uk and should include the following details:
- Why you believe the nominee deserves the award
- An example of how the nominee has displayed the attributes required to win
- Contact details of the nominee
- Which category they are being entered for: Dressage, Show Jumping, Eventing, Driving, Livery Yards and Riding Schools, or ‘other equestrian disciplines’
Entries should be sent to Kuster BEF Groom Award, British Equestrian Federation, Stoneleigh Park, Kenilworth, Warwickshire CV8 2RN or emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
