Agria Horse of a Lifetime: because heroes come in every shape and size
Here at Agria, we love all horses. They add so much to our lives and deliver us such joy on a daily basis. And for us all, there is usually one that holds a very special place in our hearts, that one in a million that just grabs us like no other and creates a bond that lasts a lifetime. We think it's time we celebrated those special souls and all that they do for us. From some of the most famous horses in the country to your own little hero who changed your life, we want to honour those horses and ponies who make the greatest impact. We want to know what makes them your horse of a lifetime.
Could your Horse of a Lifetime follow in Emma's footsteps as the next winner?
Tell us about your special horse and what makes them your horse of a lifetime, and you could win our monthly prize and a nomination for the Agria Horse of a Lifetime award at the prestigious Horse & Hound Awards in November!
The 2022 winner of Agria Horse of a Lifetime was none other than Carltonlima Emma. This little Fell Pony became the pin-up girl for all happy hacking ponies carrying our late Queen as her hack for some 15 years.
How it works:
Entries may be made at any time from 13th March 2023
Each month we will shortlist four Horse of a Lifetime entrants from those entered who will each win a rosette and Agria baseball cap.
We will share their stories and pictures on our social media channels and invite people to vote for their monthly winner from the four in the final week of each month.
Shortlisted entrants are welcome to urge friends to vote for their horse or pony.
At the end of each month, votes will be counted to determine Agria’s monthly Horse of a Lifetime winner who will be awarded a rosette (because you’re never too old to enjoy a rosette!) and a personalised BUCAS rug.
All shortlisted Horses of a Lifetime will be nominated by Agria for the Agria Horse of a Lifetime award at the annual Horse & Hound awards in November 2023.
Please note when making your entry:
Please include details of your horse or pony into the form when you enter, including up to 350 words about them.
Your entry must include a photograph that we can share on our social media channels.
Photos submitted must be owned by the entrant - this means photos you have taken yourself, not purchased from a professional photographer. If the image was not taken by you, then you must have permission from the image owner/photographer for the image to be posted on Agria's social media and used in the Agria Horse of a Lifetime competition.
If there are other people in the image with your Horse of a Lifetime, it’s vital to have their permission (or parent’s permission) for their image to be shared with us before you send us the photograph.
With thanks to Bucas for supporting the Agria Horse of a Lifetime competition and providing rugs to our monthly winners!
