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.
The VIP for each Scone Horse Festival is chosen because of their outstanding contributions to horses in the Upper Hunter Shire and this award has been presented each year since 1985.
The Scone Horse Festival VIP’s over the past few years have been incredible women who have dedicated hours and years to horse sports.
Lisa Martin, a Scone local, was our VIP last year. Most recently she placed fourth in dressage at the Rio Paralympic Game. Over the years she’s competed in hacking, eventing and polocrosse, before moving onto dressage.
In 2016, Debbie Racklyeft was the Scone Horse Festival VIP. Now retired, Debbie was a specialist equine veterinarian for many years, after moving on from losing her leg to bone cancer at age 11.
Susan Bettington was our VIP three years ago in 2015. From riding instructor to course designer, she has given hours of her time to teaching, designing courses, and being involved in pony clubs and many committees.
