2. The Horse & Hound Awards
Time is running out to submit your nominations for the 2022 Horse & Hound Awards, in partnership with NAF. The Horse & Hound Awards, now in their seventh year, seek to recognise both the big names who have made 2022 special and the unsung heroes who make it possible for all of us to enjoy equestrian sport and our horses, at whatever level. Anyone is welcome to nominate the person, group or horse they feel deserves recognition. Nominations close at 5pm today (22 September).
Horsepower to hit Amazon Prime
A new four-part documentary series following three-time champion Flat jockey Oisin Murphy as he faces the prospect of an impending ban, and top trainer Andrew Balding, will land on Amazon Prime this week. Horsepower, from the makers of hit documentary Rooney, will be released on Prime Video in the UK and Ireland on Friday (23 September). “All the ups and downs of being a champion jockey are laid bare on Horsepower, this is where I tell my story,” said Oisin. “I allowed the Horsepower cameras to see me at my best and my worst because I want people to understand the pressures that come with success for a jockey.”
