Marlen Schannwell and Clark Shipley on the shortlist for FEI Best Groom Award

Two outstanding showjumping grooms have been short listed for the FEI Best Groom Award that will be decided at the annual FEI Awards Gala in San Juan on the 13th of November. Bertram Allen's groom Marlen Schanwell and Beezie Madden's groom Clark Shipley are both candidates for the award. 

The nomination on Schanwell reads; 

"Marlen started working for Bertram 4 years ago at the start of his career and has supported him as he reached the top. The horses are always well turned out, ears pricked and performance ready to go into the arena. Bertram's performance over the last 12 months speaks volumes for the quality Marlen's care for the horses. She has been spoken of as one of the most helpful grooms on the circuit who is always happy to answer questions and help others."

The nomination on Shipley reads; 

"Clark has been with John and Beezie for more than 20 years. It goes without saying that his horsemanship and care for the horses is impeccable, but in addition to that his personality and ability to get along with all the integral members of the team like the vets, the riders, other grooms, owners, shippers etc. is fantastic. He has a way with people and a way with horses and is able to work with others in a pleasant and productive manner that is second to none. He is truly and effective person who is brilliant at his job."
