The finalists in the 2017 BETA Business Awards – prestigious B2B awards designed to celebrate and reward companies and individuals judged to have made a significant difference to the equestrian industry – have been revealed.

“Everyone has done incredibly well to get this far,” said BETA executive director Claire Williams. “We have received a phenomenal number of nominations sand, although selecting the finalists has been a really tough job, the search continues for the ultimate winners. Depending on the particular award, this can include member votes, secret shoppers, incognito calls and consideration by an independent panel. We wish all our finalists the very best of luck.”

The winners will be announced during the BETA Gala Dinner, at the National Motorcycle Museum, near Birmingham, on Sunday 22 January. The finalists are:
