British Grooms Award 2019

Monday 21 January, 2019


On Saturday evening at the British Breeders Awards Dinner, Chris Hewlett, Managing Director of Haddon Training presented the winning candidates in the four categories of the Haddon Training British Grooms Awards with their awards, commenting, “The standard of nominations received in the four categories was extremely high and along with my co-judges, Jane Holderness-Roddam and Jenny Ellis we deliberated for a number of hours of who should be the worthy winners and feel that they have all made an outstanding contribution in their careers or at the start of their career in the equestrian industry”.

The judging panel that consisted of: Pammy Hutton, Zanie King and Chris Hewlett awarded Lucy Seddon the coveted British Grooms Award who was nominated by her employer, Tom McEwen, three of his owners together with a work colleague.

Connor McCunn, a KEITS apprentice received a Highly Commended Apprentice certificate, as the judging panel felt he had made an outstanding start to his Equine Apprenticeship and should be recognised.

The British Grooms Awards gives an opportunity for all hard working grooms not only to be recognised but also to receive the acknowledgment that they quite rightly deserve and with the five categories that form the British Grooms Awards this allows for a wide spectrum of grooms to be recommended and rewarded for these prestigious awards.
