Sir Colin Spedding Award: You could nominate a candidate for the Sir Colin Spedding Award, which recognises the contribution of an “unsung hero” in the horse world. It is presented in memory of our longstanding Chairman, Sir Colin Spedding, who passed away in 2012. The award is in the form of a cold cast bronze stag beetle, a particular passion of Sir Colin’s, so much so that the beetle is affectionately known as Colin.
