Caroline Pratt Memorial Training Bursary
Kenilworth, Warwickshire, England

The Memorial Bursary was set up by Caroline's family to help aspiring young event riders achieve their full potential. Caroline was an outstanding role model for any young person who wishes to enter the eventing world. Confined to recipients living in Cheshire for the last two years, the £2000 bursary has been put to good use by previous winners.

The 2005 winner Hannah Bate has used the monies for training which helped her to finish in the top ten at Blenheim last year while 2006 winner, Emily Gilruth, having spent time establishing a team of young horses, won an award for the most successful horse in its first season.

Ridden assessments both on the flat and jumping and an interview will be overseen by a panel of selectors made up of international riders and trainers to decide the winner.
