Richard Watson receives the BHS 2021 Unsung Hero Award
The British Horse Society (BHS) has honoured the incredible winners of this year’s Annual Awards in a ceremony with BHS Vice-Patron, HRH The Princess Royal and BHS President, Martin Clunes OBE.
The BHS Annual Awards programme celebrates the individuals and organisations who have gone the extra mile, making a huge impact on behalf of the equine charity and the equestrian world. With last year’s ceremony cancelled due to the pandemic, Martin Clunes presented the awards to the winners from 2020 as well as 2021.
BHS Chief Executive James Hick said: “A big congratulations to all the BHS Annual Award winners from the past year. These awards are our way to reward and recognise the incredible achievements of our volunteers, supporters and partners, whether that be expanding equestrian access, improving equestrian welfare, campaigning for equestrian safety and more. We are hugely grateful for the valuable contribution made by all of our volunteers, without whom the Society simply wouldn’t be what it is today!”
Huge Congratulations goes to our Head Coach Richard Watson for receiving the 2021 Unsung Hero award from the BHS!
Richard said 'It was a great honour to receive the 2021 Unsung Hero Award at the British Horse Society’s Annual Award ceremony yesterday. Supporting disabled people and making a change through inclusivity in the community is something I hold dear to my heart. Thank you to the British Horse Society, Martin Clunes and HRH Princess Anne for acknowledging my work. I am blessed and humbled by this award.'
