Sponsored rider wins Scottish Equestrian Award
Pro-Equine sponsored rider Karon Carson won the Pro-Equine Achievement in Eventing Award 2016 at the Scottish Equestrian Awards held in Aberdeen on Saturday 11th February.
Pro-Equine were delighted to be involved with the Scottish Equestrian Awards and chose to sponsor the Eventing Award. Karon and her fabulous piebald horse, Finding Nico, were worthy winners of the award. Karon and Nico, aka Mr Awesome Pants, made history in2016 by becoming Scottish BE100 Champions a year after being Scottish BE90 Champions. In May 2016 the combination also competed at Badminton and came 4th in the Mitsubishi Motors BE90 competition and won the Kick On Award. Karon and Nico had qualified for Badminton again but unfortunately Nico sustained an injury which has ended his eventing career. Happily, they will be back competing at dressage later in 2017.
Pro-Equine's other sponsored rider, Carolyn Andrews, was delighted to be one of the 3 nominees for the Adult Show Jumping Award. There was another winner on the Pro-Equine table when Eilidh Grant won the award for achievement in Dressage.
