Horse & Hound Award 2017

Willow Farm Pony Club with their trophy

Staff and riders at Willow Farm were thrilled when the announcement was made that we had reached the Horse & Hound shortlist for Riding Club of the Year. The NAF Five Star Riding Club of the Year award celebrates the organisations that bring riders together and best support them in achieving their goals – changing riders’ experiences for the better.

The nomination was made based on recommendations sent in by our wonderful families and friends such as: “Willow Farm is an amazing place where children can learn to ride and enjoy being around ponies Not only do they offer riding lessons, but also they run a Pony Club centre and offer riding holidays – children come home dirty, wet and tired, but always happy.

Bob and award plaqueThe results of the online were announced during a gala dinner hosted by Horse & Hound at Ascot Racecourse on 2 November which was attended by the great and the good of the Equine world – and our own Lora Hawkins. To our great delight Willow Farm won and Lora was presented with the trophy by Jonty Evans, Team Ireland Olympic Eventer and NAF Ambassador.
