Scone Horse Festival Nominations are now being requested for 2018. This year we have three awards for: Scone Horse Festival VIP; the Young Achiever Award; and Horse of the Year.
HORSE OF THE YEAR
For the first time, we will be recognising the outstanding achievements of a horse from the Upper Hunter Shire. We will welcome nominations for horses from any breed or sporting discipline, such as camp drafting, cutting, dressage, pony club, polo, racing, rodeo etc.
Thanks to Peter Haydon who has encouraged the Scone Horse Festival to introduce this very appropriate award. Peter himself represents a long family history of breeding and celebrating horses for a variety of disciplines through Haydon Horse Stud since the early 1830’s. Click here to read more.
“As Horse Capital of Australia, we have such a broad scope of horse pursuits from pony club to all the performance horses, to racing. And whilst the Scone Horse Festival has always recognized people, it is so very appropriate to acknowledge the achievements of an outstanding horse as Horse of the Year.” Peter Haydon, Haydon Horse Stud.
“Down the track we would like to encourage each sport to establish their own annual awards and then nominate their most accomplished horse each year for the Scone Horse Festival Horse of the Year. This is our quest for 2019.” David Gatwood, Scone Horse Festival.
