Timeline Photos Today, HM Queen Elizabeth II received the first ever FEI Lifetime Achievement award as part of the FEI Awards 2014 from our President, HRH Princess Haya in recognition of her leading role as a global ambassador and supporter of equestrian sport throughout her reign as British monarch.
“Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is a life-long lover of horses who has inspired millions around the world and I am honoured to be able to present the first-ever FEI Lifetime Achievement award to Her Majesty on behalf of the FEI today”, HRH Princess Haya said after the presentation at Buckingham Palace. “She is a true horsewoman, who still rides whenever State business allows, and her knowledge of breeding and bloodlines is incredible. The bond between the Queen and horses is truly extraordinary and I can’t think of anyone more fitting to receive this very special FEI award in the Year of the Horse.”
