The pair went on to win an Olympic Silver Medal at the Mexico Olympics in 1968, the Embassy Grand Prix at Hickstead, and many more top competitions.

Previous laureates whose owners are receiving certificates today:
Merely a Monarch
Merely a Monarch was winner of Burghley in 1961 and the Badminton Horse Trials in 1962 with Anneli Drummond-Hay.
He won Badminton and an International Show Jumping Grand Prix within months of each other and was beyond doubt a most talented horse.
Merely a Monarch helped launch Anneli Drummond-Hay on to the international scene and was short-listed in all three Olympic disciplines.
He was voted in a L'annee Hippique Worldwide Poll as one of the best 50 horses of the 20th Century.
Cornishman won Double Olympic Team Gold in Eventing - in 1968 with Richard Meade and in 1972 with Mary Gordon-Watson.
He helped two riders to victory in equestrian events and was the only non-human Olympic medallist to pursue a successful film career with appearances in Dead Cert (1974), based on a Dick Francis novel, and International Velvet (1978).
Sefton was the Household Cavalry horse who survived the IRA bombings in London in 1982.
He underwent eight hours of surgery and became a household name. He was 19 years old at the time of the bombings and received a blaze of media attention and enormous concern from members of the public.
Sefton was retired to The Home of Rest for Horses shortly afterwards and stayed there until 1993. He became incurably lame from the injuries he suffered and was put to sleep at the age of 30.
Sefton's legacy lives on through The British Horse Society Sefton Awards, set up in 1984, and also the Sefton Equine Referral Unit which is based at the Royal Veterinary College.
Household Cavalry tradition dictates that horses' names are re-used, which ensures that Sefton's memory will live on.
Jennie Loriston-Clarke won a Bronze medal at the World Equestrian Games on her brilliant mount Dutch Courage.
Dutch Courage moved on to the Catherston Stud, in Hampshire, where he was the foundation stallion. His stock is said to have excelled widely, in the UK and overseas.
