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.
