Pikeur has sponsored the Amateur Rider Award since its inception in 2016 and this year nominations are for the Amateur Rider of the Decade, 2011-2020.

We are looking for a rider who stands out for what they have achieved in the past decade, holding their own among professionals and respected for their good horsemanship.

The horse-lovers' wine, Caballo Oscuro, is supporting the Awards with bottles of fizz for the winners and the chance for one viewer of the Awards to win a year's worth of wine!!!
