Anne Balfour-Kinnear/ARC Training Legacy 2021
This award has historic origins from the 1950s. Miss Anne Balfour-Kinnear was a founding member of BHS Scotland and a staunch supporter of the BHS and The Pony Club. Her life was dedicated to helping others get the most from horses, riding and their careers. Anne Balfour-Kinnear instilled in several generations the ‘right way’ to do things. She was a skilled instructor and many a young person passed tests and exams thanks to Anne’s thorough and good coaching. On her death she left a legacy from which an annual bursary is to be paid to further the training of young Scottish instructors who are committed to helping others. In this spirit BHS Scotland has continued the award thanks to the recent generous sponsorship of Aberdeen Riding Club which has kept the award relevant to the modern world. The purpose of the fund is to offer instructional facilities to young coaches, aged 25 years and under, who reside in Scotland. Candidates are expected to be committed to equestrian training and show involvement with coaching others, gaining qualifications and helping riding or pony clubs. One award is made annually.
