The ESMAs | Badminton Won Best Event

In case you haven't heard yet, the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials won an Equestrian Social Media Award for "Best Use of Social Media by an Event", and all thanks to your votes.

It's always nice to win an award, especially one that has been voted for by 'the masses', so thank you, we really do appreciate it. Over the past ten years we have really stepped up our use of the Internet & Social Media, from the early beginnings with a 'chatroom' hosting 35,000 people, to the hundreds of thousands of people that view our collection of online media today. We're immensely pleased to see the delight you all get from the news, views, interviews, plus all manner of things we share with you across the web, and strive to add new and interesting content each year.

This is the first year for the ESMAs, the brainchild of Liam Killen & Rhea Freeman, aimed at providing recognition for those in the industry that make good use of the various social media channels. You nominated Badminton for two awards, the other being Best You Tube Channel. We were just nudged out of that by the worthy winners, Horse & Hound Magazine, but there's always next year!

Here's a short video announcing our win together with our acceptance speech. Once again, many thanks and do keep an eye on the website as we have a few really exciting, new things to share with you over the coming weeks.
