I have a dream.
In my last post I drew attention to the fact that there is no Horse of the Year award in the forthcoming FEI awards.
One of my devoted readers has reported to me that he has in fact voted for a horse in the Best Athlete category: “I figured a horse is an Athlete and thus fits under the category of Athlete of the Year,” my fan told me.
What a good point.
Is the horse not the ultimate athlete? Where would horse sport be without our four-legged friends?? Indeed, where would humanity be?
If you, dear reader, feel the horse is “paramount” to horse sport, then vote for your favourite equine in the Best Athlete category.
But, darlings, we have to play it straight. Think sensibly about your nomination, and why you are making it.
“We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline.” – Martin Luther King, 1963
Give a reason for your nomination, and you can upload a picture or a text file with your vote. You will need to leave your name, email address and phone number, among other details. Please make your vote count by doing it properly.
Let the people speak.
