On Friday 6 May, British Equestrian honoured leading equestrian figures for their services to the industry. Five eventing athletes and two vets were presented with the British Equestrian Medal of Honour by the federation’s Chair, Malcolm Wharton, at a reception held in the Directors’ Tent following the culmination of the dressage phase at Badminton Horse Trials, presented by Mars Equestrian.
The nominated athletes were all medallists from last summer’s Olympic Games and European Championships, including eventing team gold medallists Laura Collett and Tom McEwen. Together with Oliver Townend, who will receive his medal at a later date, the pair won Team GB’s first eventing team gold since 1972, while Tom also took an individual silver medal with Toledo de Kerser.
