David Broome won the Horse & Hound Lifetime Achievement Award at Wednesday’s seventh Horse & Hound Awards at Cheltenham Racecourse, which was attended by more than 300 people.

Broome – now 82 – rode at five Olympics and won 14 championship medals, including Britain’s first individual Olympic showjumping medal, a bronze in 1960 in Rome. That year, he was the first British rider to be named sports personality of the year.

Broome said: “I’ve had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed it. Every win’s important on the day and I’ve had a lot of fun. I can remember winning a £50 class at Malmesbury, beating all the young riders in it. I was about 40 on a horse that couldn’t go very quick and I managed to pull off a bit of a turn – I was tickled pink that day!”

British showjumper Joe Stockdale, the 23-year-old son of the late Tim Stockdale, won the Tommy Hilfiger Equestrian Young Rider of the Year for his impressive performances this season.
