Former racehorses took centre stage at the  annual British Horse Foundation Breeders dinner and awards held in London recently. 

The evening combined the South Essex Insurance Brokers (SEIB) and the charity Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) Elite Performance Awards for ex-racehorses, with a total prize fund of £17,000 donated by RoR.  

Launched by SEIB more than 10 years ago, the awards focus on ex-racehorses competing in the eventing, dressage, show jumping, endurance and showing  recognising the talents and versatility of the Thoroughbred. 

The winner of each category was presented with a cheque for £2,500 and the runner up in each section received £500.

"The Performance Awards provide a platform to show how a correctly re-schooled ex-racehorse can be successful in a new career and continue to have a bright future, competing successfully in many different disciplines.  This year’s competition has proved yet again the versatility and resilience of the Thoroughbred", said Nicolina Mackenzie, marketing manager of SEIB.
