Kellythorpe_Logo_web.jpgSince the introduction of the immensely popular Horse of the Year Show Awards series in 2012, "The World’s Most Famous Horse Show" is a time to honour both those who excel in each Championship final and those that have performed consistently well throughout the qualifying season. 

As the competition continued in the Andrews Bowen International Arena, a dazzling Awards Reception took place on the evening of Thursday 9th October for the Kellythorpe Stud sponsored Kellythorpes Leading Breeder Awards series and Kellythorpes Leading Sire Award series.  

The winning breeders in each category of the Kellythropes Leading Breeder Award Series and Kellythorpes Leading Sire Award series were presented with an exclusive gift, while enjoying their own time in the spotlight to reflect on the success of their horses and ponies. 

The overall Kellythorpes Leading Sire of the Year Award went to the winner of the Kellythorpes Show Horse Sire of the Year, Kilvington Scoundrel. The sire, who is owned by Joanna MacInnes, claiming the title for the third time, gained the most points among all of the ridden categories over the season to take the prestigious title for the third year running.

Bred in North Yorkshire by Yvonne Broadwith and bought by Joanna as a yearling, Kilvington Scoundrel is well known throughout the showing world for his impressive string of progeny, which includes numerous Riding Horses, Hacks, Intermediates and Ponies. He has also sired two Supreme Horse of the Year Champions: The Philanderer in 2009 and Pearly King in 2012. 

The overall Kellythorpes Leading Breeder of the Year, who accumulated the most points among all of the ridden categories, was the winner of the Show Pony Breeder of the Year: the Barkway Stud based in Royston, Hertfordshire. Owned and run by Ann and Claire Smalley, the stud retains the overall title for the third year running.

Established in 1979, the Barkway Stud breeds and produces quality riding ponies, Welsh Section B ponies and Welsh Part Bred ponies. A number of its ponies regularly qualify for HOYS. Just last year, 12 Barkway Stud ponies qualified, one of which went on to take the LEGO Mini Show Pony of the Year Championship.

The Kellythorpes Leading Breeder and Kellythorpes Leading Sire Award series aim to recognise and honour the efforts of dedicated breeders, who continually strive for excellence. Based on information collected on the Grandstand Online Entries System, the award winners were decided using a points scale in Horse of the Year Show qualifiers. Each time a horse or pony is placed down to fifth in a qualifier, points are added to a league table under their respective breeder’s/sire’s name. 

Kellythorpe Stud has sponsored the Kellythorpes Leading Sire of the Year Award series since its inception in 2012. Kellythorpe Stud further expanded its affiliation with Horse of the Year Show’s Awards this year by backing the Leading Breeder of the Year Award series.
