JUDITH SIMPSON MEMORIAL TROPHY
Judith Simpson’s competition days in dressage were limited but her contribution to the sport was huge. Her knowledge was second to none and had a fantastic eye for horses. She was the Chef d’Equipe for the first dressage team that went to Australia where they won the inaugural Trans Tasman Trophy and went on to accompany teams to WEG and individuals to Olympic Games. On all these occasions her knowledge and diplomacy were invaluable. Some would say Judith was the first ‘steward’ they had at shows, before stewarding was formalized.
