This is the 14th time the Welfare award has been presented after it was introduced in 2000 in partnership with Blue Cross, a leading pet charity.

Blue Cross Chairman Zair Berry, who presented the award to Anne. said “the Princess Royal has championed the cause of horse welfare for many years and is a strong unifying voice for the industry. I am proud to be able to present Her Royal Highness with the BEVA Welfare Award 2014 and offer many congratulations.”
