The 2013 winner of the prestigious BHS Scotland / Aberdeen RC / Anne Balfour-Kinnear Training legacy is 25 years old Rebecca Taylor from Bridge of Earn.
This annual training award is the result of a bequest left by Anne Balfour Kinnear to be given to a young instructor within the BHS system in Scotland who shows dedication to training and working constructively for the good of the horse with other organisations. Rebecca fought off keen competition to win the award which is given after a series of panel interviews. She received a certificate and a cheque for £500 – this legacy is subsidised generously by Aberdeen Riding Club.
Rebecca said: "I was delighted to be chosen as the lucky winner of the Anne Balfour-Kinnear Training Legacy for 2013 and it was extremely satisfying to see my commitment towards equestrian training and involvement with The Pony Club being rewarded. I plan to use the bursary to sit the BHS Intermediate Teaching Test this year."
