Nominations open for British Horse Foundation Awards

Nominations are now open for The British Horse Foundation Stallion AI Services Meritoire Award and Horse & Hound Outstanding Mare Award, which will be presented at the British Horse Foundation Awards Dinner on 11 January 2020.


Stallion AI Services Meritoire Award

The prestigious Stallion AI Services Meritoire Award is presented to the person who, in the opinion of the British Horse Foundation Awards Committee has made an outstanding lifetime contribution to the performance sport horse and pony breeding industry.

The definition of Meritoire is commendable and praiseworthy and therefore this award is uniquely placed to honour that special someone whose legacy within British breeding is recognised for their exceptional input, commitment and dedication.

Tullis Matson, Managing Director of Stallion AI Services says, “We are proud to sponsor the Meritoire Award, we pride ourselves on the professional and committed customer service we provide to our clients, which is in keeping with the philosophy of this award.

Stallion AI Services understands that quality and longevity must be a priority when considering how valuable any contribution has been to the horse world which we all value so much”. 


Horse & Hound Outstanding Mare Award

The Horse & Hound Outstanding Mare Award is to be presented to the breeder or associate of the mare who, in the opinion of Horse & Hound’s editorial team, has made the greatest contribution to British bred success. 

A nominated mare may have had an outstanding competition career herself or have bred a dynasty of progeny that have gone on to succeed in sport, or both.


Nominations close on 2nd December 2019 and awards will be presented at the British Horse Foundation Awards Dinner, hosted and organised by the British Horse Foundation in London on 11th January 2020.
