Hickstead awarded with Ryan's Son Trophy

The team from the All England Jumping Course were presented with the award at the London International Horse Show 

Ryan's Son Trophy LIHS PN22 61509 (002)

The Hickstead team was delighted to be presented with an award for our contribution to the sport of showjumping.

The Ryan’s Son Trophy is given annually at the London International Horse Show by Clare and John Whitaker, in recognition of those who have done the most for the sport of showjumping. 

Hickstead’s founder Douglas Bunn was presented with the same award back in 1999, the year we delivered a very successful European Championships, while other past recipients include David Broome, Bob Ellis, Jon Doney and Nick Skelton.

Hickstead Directors Lizzie and Edward Bunn attended the London International Horse Show at its new home at the Excel Centre, to receive the award.

“We are deeply honoured to have been chosen as this year’s recipient of the Ryan’s Son Trophy,” said Lizzie Bunn. “This season marked a special year for us, as not only did we have the return of our international shows after a three-year absence due to the pandemic, but we also celebrated the 60th renewal of our most iconic class, the Al Shira’aa Derby. Ryan’s Son is one of the best and most beloved horses on the Hickstead Derby roll of honour, so we’re especially touched to be chosen as the winner of the award given each year in his memory.”

We host two of the biggest horse shows in the equestrian calendar – the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting (22-25 June 2023) and the Longines Royal International Horse Show (25-30 July 2023). Tickets are on sale now
