Longines EEF Series

Horse of the Year

Lord Mexx ridden by Angelos Touloupis won Horse of the Year  2023 award

We are delighted to announce that following a very close public vote the winner of the Longines EEF Series Horse of the Year, in association with the Jumping Owners Club is Lord Mexx!!

We headed to Austria to meet Lord Mexx, the Touloupis family, Angelos and Jenny and find out what makes Lordi so special

Intended to shine a light on the equine athletes, their grooms and their owners, the award will follow a nomination period before a public vote decides the winner.

Eligible horses must have competed in at least two Longines EEF Series events (season 2023) and each nomination should include a rationale as to why this horse deserves to win.

We know that the Longines EEF Series is about more than clear rounds. Young horses gaining experience, combinations returning from injury or setback and experienced schoolmasters helping their young riders reach new heights can all be found.

Which four-legged star will be our horse of the year?

Six horses have been put forward for the first-ever Longines EEF Series Horse of the Year, in association with the Jumping Owners Club.

The EEF and the Jumping Owners Club are proud to present the six finalists for the first-ever Longines EEF Series Horse of the Year.

The nomination process was open to all horses who had competed in at least two Longines EEF Series competitions (season 2023) and we are delighted to honour this group of well-deserving equine athletes.
