We can scarcely believe it, but our little club CROWN has only just gone and won the NAF Five Star Riding Club of the Year Award at last night’s Horse & Hound Awards Ceremony at Ascot Racecourse! Thank you SO much to every single person who voted for CROWN – we were absolutely delighted and honored to have been nominated for the award alongside four other fantastic and equally deserving riding clubs – Forces Equine, Corbridge and District, Stonehaven & Area and fellow Area 5 club Cherwell Valley. To be up against such strong, well established clubs we really didn’t think we stood much chance of winning, but our members and supporters made it happen and we are forever grateful for your support.

It was such a fantastic evening from start to finish with plenty of fan girl moments going on when we spotted the likes of Mary King, Tina Cook, Ben Hobday, Nick Skelton, Valegro’s super groom Alan as well as Lee Pearson and Lucinda Green! So inspiring and such a priviledge to meet and chat to them all. Thank you so much to Horse & Hound for such a wonderful evening and to NAF Five Star for sponsoring the category. It really was an event which we will never forget!
What a way to finish what has been such a fantastic year for CROWN! As a committee our dreams for the club really feel like they are starting to come true and we will continue to work incredibly hard to bring our members the very best opportunities, support and fun.
