BETA Year of the Horse Competition

The British Equestrian Trade Association has launched an exciting competition to celebrate 2014, the BETA Year of the Horse. Nominations are invited from everyone with a favourite horse – from a cuddly family pony to an equine superstar that has inspired them.

The winner will choose from a specially commissioned portrait of their nominated horse or a beautiful Swarovski crystal figurine. “This competition gives a definite nod to the Chinese horoscope, but with a bit of a home-grown twist,” said BETA executive director Claire Williams. “The BETA Year of the Horse is a wonderful way to share in the fun while at the same time recognising the powerful influence that these wonderful animals have on so many of our lives.”

Nominations can be made via forms available from participating tack shops or online under the 'Awards' section of this website. Nominations close on 29 August, with the winner announced on 3 October 2014. For further information, contact Tina Hustler, telephone 01937 587062 or email
