In an attempt to acknowledge our breeders, we are looking for the outstanding horse of 2019.

The horse must have been bred in the North West and excelled itself or through its progeny in any discipline whether it is in Point to Pointing, Racing, Show-jumping, Eventing, Driving, Dressage, Showing (In Hand or Ridden) or Long Distance.

A horse will be eligible for consideration providing it fulfils the following criteria:

 It must be  by a SHB(GB) graded or HIS approved stallion (depending on age)  OR  out of a mare registered with SHB(GB)

This horse must have been bred in the North West area but not necessarily be owned by a person currently residing in the North West.  Please help us to recognise the breeders of horses in the North West by nominating horses for this award. The breeder does not have to be a member of the society and you can nominate horses you have bred yourself.

The Committee will decide on the winner from your nomination.

Please forward nominations and all relevant information to Mark Fitton, New Hill Farm, Manchester Road, Worsley, Manchester M28 3NL  before 1st November 2019 or via e-mail to
