The exciting new event will also see the launch of a new award – the British Eventing Personality of the Year Award with members able to nominate individuals they feel deserve recognition for their contribution to the sport of eventing. There will be two categories, one for over 21’s and the other for under 21’s. Nominations for the award will open to members on 1st March and close on 31st August.
Jude Matthews, Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are really looking forward to seeing the nominations for this award. I am sure there are lots of stories waiting to be told about extraordinary individuals in eventing. The new BE Ball is the perfect setting to celebrate their contribution.”
After nominations close a committee of key eventing stakeholders will decide upon four finalists for each category with the winners being announced at the BE Ball.
The BE Ball will take place on 31st October at The Forest of Arden Hotel.
