We welcome equestrian business owners from all backgrounds, whether you are a one man band or have employees. Our aim is to be as inclusive and diverse as possible. We appreciate that some business owners may have different fields of expertise, for example be a riding instructor as well as an accredited saddle fitter. Therefore, individuals may enter more than one category where relevant. Self nominations as well as client nominations are welcomed.
