Suzanna Aromando won the Vicky Laing STX Equine Fitness Horse Care award at the 2015 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. This prize is awarded to the groom of the best cared for horse, in recognition of their hard work and dedication.
Suzanna looks after Silvia, the ride of her husband, Warren Lamperd. A dressage rider herself, they trade Suzanna grooming for Warren at Events, with him driving her to dressage shows.
“Silvia loves being pampered, which is lucky given she is grey. I do lots and lots of shampooing.”
This year’s competition was judged by Anne Varley. Explaining her choice Anne said: “Silvia always looked beautiful. Suzanna’s stable management was excellent – I watched her morning, noon and night, without her knowing I was watching, and she was always busy, always totally committed to the horse.”
The runner up prize was awarded to Khia Cadney-Moon, the groom of Mark Todd’s ride Leonidas II.
