The British Showjumping RoR 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 month period. A £2,500 award is given to the winning combination with the five additional winners each receiving £500 each.
