Harwood Dale’s Lottie Fry has been presented with a top national equestrian award by Princess Anne.
Fry, who works as senior competition rider at Van Olst Horses in Holland, has won the Animal Health Trust Under25 Star of the Future Award at the Marriott Hotel in London.
In 2016 Fry took up the opportunity of a lifetime to be based in the Netherlands with iconic breeding stud and producers, Van Olst Horses and it has propelled her career to a new height.
Her riding skill has evolved and she has been given some high-profile rides at prestigious competitions, where she has more than held her own against dressage’s top names.
In August, she travelled to the World Breeding Championships in Ermelo with three horses for the Van Olsts including one of the sport’s most promising young stallions, Everdale.
She won the Prix St Georges and finished second in the Inter I in the Stallion of the Year section.
AHT’s long standing president and avid horse enthusiast HRH The Princess Royal, welcomed professional riders, leading equine vets and horse welfare specialists to this year’s special anniversary event.
The Trust’s work over the last 75 years has aimed at improving the health and welfare of all equines, from elite competition horses to beloved family ponies.
This event is not only a wonderful exhibition of equestrian excellence, but is an essential fundraiser for the AHT to continue its work for benefit of dogs, cats and horses.
Every penny of profit made or raised by the AHT is reinvested into their industryleading science and care for animals.
