2013 Cubitt Award Winners

Cubitt Awards – Honouring our Volunteers

What is the Cubitt Award?
The Cubitt Award is a way of Branches, Centres and The Pony Club honouring those that have passed the landmark of at least twenty years of voluntary help to the Organisation.

In 1987, Patrick Langford, a past Pony Club Chairman, suggested that there should be a special award for those special people who volunteer so much of their time and energy. Subsequently, The Pony Club Council created the Cubitt Award in 1988 and it is named after the late Hon. Guy Cubitt, a former Chairman of The Pony Club (1945 to 1970).

Who can be nominated for a Cubitt Award?
Anyone who has volunteered for The Pony Club at either Branch, Centre or National level for 20 or more years.

Who can make the Cubitt Award nomination?
Any Branch or Equestrian Council Committee Member, Centre Proprietor or Centre Coordinator.

How do I nominate someone for a Cubitt Award?
Fill out the online nomination form on the tab below. This nomination will then be ratified by the Area Representative and the Chairman of The Pony Club.

What happens after the nomination?
Once ratified the nominees will be invited to the Cubitt Award luncheon held bi-annualy, where they will be awarded their Cubitt Badge and certificate. The next Cubitt Award Luncheon will be held on 8th June 2017 at the Stratford Manor Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon.
