Finalists announced for the 2021 BETA Business Awards

The presentation of winners will take place online on Thursday 11 March

Finalists of the 2021 BETA Business Awards, leading B2B accolades recognising and rewarding the outstanding achievements of individuals and companies in the equestrian industry, have been announced.

“After an incredibly challenging year for us all, I am thrilled that the awards have been so positively received,” said BETA executive director Claire Williams. “We have had a huge number of nominations across the board, which really shows that, in times like these, members of our industry are keen to rally and support one another.

“Of course, we have had to make slight changes to the awards’ format. The presentation of winners will now take place online but, otherwise, it is all systems go as we celebrate those industry heroes who really have gone above and beyond over the past 12 months.

“We would like to congratulate all our finalists, who have done incredibly well to get this far, and wish them the very best of luck.”

The BETA Business Awards were launched in 2004 and have grown to become prestigious industry accolades and a landmark in the equestrian calendar. Categories are designed to reflect the changing face of this vibrant sector.

This year, however, the Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the Equine Careers Sales Representative of the Year and Equestrian Event of the Year supported by Henson Franklyn categories being held over until 2022.

The winners of the 2021 BETA Business Awards will be announced in an online ceremony at 4pm on Thursday 11 March. Further details are available from the BETA office, telephone 01937 587062 or email
