Yasmin Ingham awarded the prestigious Raymond Brooks-Ward Trophy

British Eventing’s Individual World Championship title holder Yasmin Ingham was awarded the prestigious Raymond Brooks-Ward Memorial Trophy at the London International Horse Show, taking place at the ExCel Arena in London last night.  Presented by HRH The Princess Royal and Simon Brooks-Ward, the son of Raymond Brooks-Ward,  in front of a packed house it was great to see Yasmin and Eventing recognised in this way.

The trophy, which is awarded to a rider aged 25 or under, who has shown the greatest potential for future success across the three equestrian Olympic disciplines, was awarded to Yasmin from the selection panel that oversee the award each year.  Talking after the prize giving Yasmin said “I feel very honoured to have been awarded the Raymond Brooks-Ward Memorial trophy.  It’s a very historic trophy and I feel so proud to have my name engraved on it alongside so many icons of equestrian sport.”

Previous winners of the trophy since it began in 1992 include Pippa Funnell, Zara Tindall, Tina Cook, Sophie Christiansen and Laura Bechtolsheimer and Natasha Baker.
