Our very own Lesley Barwise-Munro will be on the judging panel at this year's BETA innovation award ceremony taking place on Sunday 22nd January.

BETA International's Innovation awards are designed to reward the craftmanship, invention, technology and design found in many new products today.

There are eight categories in the awards:

  • Country clothing and Footwear
  • Feed and Supplements
  • General
  • Horsecare Equipment and Horse Clothing
  • Pet Products
  • Rider clothing and footwear
  • Saddlery and Tack
  • Safety and Security

Judging takes place on Sunday 22nd January, the first day of the show - behind closed doors!

The process will take several hours as the judging team will carefully consider each entry. Exhibitors then gather to see Equestrian Trade News editor Liz Benwell and advertising sales manager Nicki Lewis present the winners with their trophies on Monday 23rd of January.

Exhibitors will secure the right to include the Innovation Awards logo in all marketing of a winning product for the following 12 months.

Lesley is joined on the judging panel by James Edwards - retailer and BETA council member. James runs Acorn saddlery in Devon, and Piggy French, one of Britain's leading event riders who has competed as a Team GB member at World and European championships, as well as other key industry leaders in the Equine sphere.

At XLEquine and Alnorthumbria Equine Vets we are committed to providing you with up-to-date training to enable you to be further equipped to look after the horses and ponies in your care.

EquineSkills workshops will be delivered to small groups of horse owners and will be both interactive and practical using live animals and associated props where appropriate. They will be delivered by our equine veterinary team, who themselves will have attended an accredited training course, to ensure that we deliver a consistently high level of education, catering for all levels.

All our EquineSkills workshops are endorsed by the Association of British Riding Schools.
