Gauntlett has earned one of the most important coaching qualifications in the world.

He has been awarded the prestigious title of Fellow of the British Horse Society, joining a limited number of people globally to have made the grade.

The society said the fellowship was the highest recognition of professional standards across the equine industry. It was introduced 66 years ago but just 80 people have become fellows since then and currently there are just 53 on the roll of honour.

Candidates have to “display in-depth knowledge and effectiveness in all aspects of equitation and horsemanship” to reach the standards required and be someone to who others can turn to for advice in all equestrian activities.

As well as competing internationally, Nick is in demand at home and overseas as a trainer. He said he was “very honoured” to have achieved the qualification.
