IJRC BOARD MEMBER Peder Fredricson took the Peden Bloodstock FEI Best Athlete Award

The winners of the prestigious 2021 FEI Awards have been announced at a star-studded gala in Antwerp, Belgium last Wednesday.

Fredricson, the Swedish Jumping star, took the Peden Bloodstock FEI Best Athlete Award, adding to his already impressive trophy cabinet of Olympic and European Championship medals, as well as his No.1 spot on the Longines World Ranking that he took in October 2021 for the first time in his career.

“I’m really proud and grateful for the Peden Best Athlete Award. It means a lot to me, my team, and all my owners,” Fredricson said.

“I always try to do my best and improve myself, my team and the horses, rather than beat anyone else. We all work really hard to keep the horses fit and healthy, to achieve these goals and win many medals along the way. I’m also very grateful to my horse owners who stand by me and provide me this good string of horses. Thank you very much!”
