Sydney Dressage Annual Awards

Every year Sydney Dressage Inc. conducts annual awards to recognise the success and achievements of our members.  Once the rider and owner join as financial members of the club, they are automatically eligible and included in our awards program. Please note all performances prior to the rider and owner becoming a member are ineligible. The awards we offer include:

Horse of the Year Awards

Horse and pony of the year awards are calculated by averaging the top four scores (i.e. percentages) achieved at the one level. Both Official Competitive and Official Participant scores are included (but not HC scores) at all levels with the exception of FEI classes where the results will be calculated by averaging the top two scores.

Preliminary HOTY – Winner and Reserve
Novice HOTY – Winner and Reserve
Elementary HOTY- Winner and Reserve

Pony of the Year- Winner and Reserve,

Rising Star Award

The Rising Star Award is presented to the rider and horse combination who have improved the most throughout the year. The winner of the award will be chosen at the discretion of the SDI Committee and announced with the HOTY results.

Tennyson Stud Award

The Tennyson Stud Award recognises a member and horse combination with the highest percentage score calculated by averaging each rider/horse combination’s top four scores, regardless of level. At least one score must come from an Official Competitive Class. This trophy has been kindly donated by Claire Seidl of Tennyson Stud.
