Last chance to vote! Who should win the 2023 Horse & Hound Awards?

  • The shortlists have been announced in the eighth annual Horse & Hound Awards in partnership with NAF – and you’ve only got a few hours to determine who the winners will be.

    Voting opened on 19 October, for the four shortlisted individuals in each of 13 categories, narrowed down from thousands of nominations, and closes tonight (26 October), at 11.59pm.

    H&H magazine editor Pippa Roome said: “We’re excited to open voting for the Horse & Hound Awards in partnership with NAF. There were so many great nominations it was a hard job whittling them down to the shortlists and I hope our readers enjoy checking out the candidates’ stories, from medals to selfless dedication to our horses’ wellbeing.

    “It’s over to the public now to choose the winners so make sure you get your votes in before the deadline.”

    You can read all the finalists’ stories and decide which of them you think should win, on our dedicated awards hub as well as in today’s magazine.
