Top Rural Business Awards Finalist

Ballinger Equine is in the running to be named one of the best rural businesses in the UK after being shortlisted for two top regional Rural Business Awards, Best Rural Start-Up Business and Best Rural Professional Services Business, in the 2019/20 Rural Business Awards, held in partnership with Amazon.

Finalist in two best business categories

On hearing that the practice had been shortlisted for the awards, Katie Branley, Ballinger Equine’s practice manager said: “Everybody in the practice is thrilled that our hard work and commitment has been recognised at a regional level. We’re all passionate about building something special and it is a real boost to us all that we’ve been shortlisted in not just one, but two categories.”

Director and Co-Founder of The Rural Business Awards, Anna Price, said: “The 2019/20 Awards have seen record numbers of entries and it’s encouraging to see so many rural businesses express a desire to celebrate their successes on a regional and national scale. We are passionate about creating a nurturing environment where rural businesses can develop, and this starts by showcasing the great work they do. On behalf of everyone at the Rural Business Awards, we want to say well done to Ballinger Equine, and all the shortlisted businesses, and wish them luck ahead of the regional finals.”

Leicestershire businesswomen Anna Price and Jemma Clifford conceived the Rural Business Awards as a way to showcase the wealth of entrepreneurial talent in rural areas of Britain.

The Awards are organised by rural business for rural business, with winners in 12 categories – ranging from Best Rural Start-up and Best Rural Diversification Project; through to Best Rural Professional Services Business and Rural Digital, Communications or Media Business – decided by an independent panel of judges drawn from the rural business sector, rural public sector agencies, and rural charitable organisations.

The Rural Business Awards is hosting a series of regional finals in the North, East, Midlands, South East, South West, Wales and Northern Ireland, throughout October and November 2019, ahead of the National Final next February.
