The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) has named Lucy Elder its Journalist of the Year for 2018, in acknowledgement of her contribution to equestrian sports coverage over the past 12 months.

Presented at the British Equestrian Writers Association awards lunch, Lucy was awarded the trophy by BEF Chief Executive, Nick Fellows.

Nick said; "Lucy is a young, talented journalist who has developed professional and positive relationships within the equestrian industry and has produced many well- balanced articles to promote equestrian sport initiatives, particularly in dressage and eventing, and this work was highlighted by several members of the panel."

The BEF Journalist of the Year award recognises great journalism in equestrian sport, celebrating the work of a written journalist, broadcaster or photographer who has gone above and beyond to promote equestrian sport over the last year.

Representatives from the BEF's Member Bodies deliberated to decide the winner from a shortlist of eight candidates put forward by the 19 members.

Wendy Nix, who was nominated for her contribution to the sport of carriage driving, receives a special mention for her voluntary ongoing efforts to publicise the sport to a wider audience.
