Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) and British Showjumping are pleased to announce that the winner of the 2013 British Showjumping Retraining of Racehorses/SEIB National Recognition Awards is Tanktastic, an 11 year-old bay gelding owned by Christopher Tomkins and ridden by his daughter, 16 year-old Isabelle Tomkins from Bognor Regis, West Sussex.
The British Showjumping RoR/SEIB National Recognition Awards provide a focus for ex-racehorses that have started Showjumping with the national governing body. There are a total of six cash awards that are given to the highest graded horses during the given twelve months period. A £2,500 award is given to the winning combination with the five additional winners each receiving £500 each.
