About the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) Awards

The FEI Awards were launched in 2009 to put a spotlight on the men, women, young people and organisations that are making an outstanding contribution to the progress and excellence of equestrian sport – in or out of the arena. Make your nominations now and let us roll out the red carpet for the stars of today and tomorrow.

Nomination Categories

FEI is accepting nominations in five categories:

  • Best Groom, for that important person who works behind the scenes and ensures the horses he or she looks after are given the best possible care.
  • Against All Odds, for a person who has pursued his or her equestrian ambitions despite a physical handicap or extremely difficult personal circumstances.
  • Longines Rising Star, for a person aged 14 to 21 who demonstrates outstanding sporting talent and commitment.
  • Development, for a person or organization dedicated to making equestrian sport accessible to a wider public.
  • Reem Acra Best Athlete, for the athlete (equine or human) or combination that, over the past year, has demonstrated exceptional skill in the arena and taken the sport to a new level.

Winners

Winners will be flown to Montreux (SUI) to receive their awards. The FEI Awards Ceremony will take place during a gala evening on 7 November and will be attended by representatives from the 132 National Federations affiliated to the FEI.
