Star horsey photos set to snaffle BETA hamper prize

The British Equestrian Trade Association’s annual Calendar Competition is up and running

The British Equestrian Trade Association’s annual Calendar Competition is up and running and on the lookout for the cream of the crop – 12 fab horsey pictures to be the stars of the 2022 BETA calendar. Images will be picked to represent each month, with the one judged Best in Show bagging the entrant a fantastic gift hamper.

All photographs submitted must have been taken by the person who enters them – they must not be a professional photographer. This rule is very important, as it helps to protect the spirit of the competition, which is designed to celebrate the enthusiasm and creativity of all those who love horses.

Images should be supplied in a digital format, minimum size 150 x 115mm (1,722 x 1,358px), 300dpi or at least 2MB, and must not be subject to copyright. They should be emailed to BETA,, with the entrant’s name, address and a description of what is depicted. The deadline for submissions is Friday 17 September 2021.

“The BETA Calendar Competition is one of our most eagerly anticipated initiatives,” said BETA executive director Claire Williams. “It offers a great opportunity for riders, owners and equestrian enthusiasts to showcase their photos in a really super way. With most of us having high-quality cameras on our mobile phones, we can capture some delightfully spontaneous shots as they happen.

“The images selected for the calendar certainly help to brighten up offices, stores and yards, and each month is printed with essential show dates to help plan for the year ahead.”

The 2021 calendar competition was won by Amanda Smith with her stunning photograph of the South Yorkshire Police team at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
