Despite the absence of British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) Congress this year due to the restrictions of COVID-19, the Association continued in its tradition of recognizing brilliance within the equine veterinary profession and presented two awards, albeit virtually, on September 10, 2020.

The BEVA Richard Hartley Clinical Award was presented to April L.

The award is given in memory of Richard Hartley, a founding member of BEVA and president from 1974 to 1975. It is awarded for evidence-based papers with direct clinical application, and the prize is intended to support travel of the senior author and/or co-authors.

The Peter Rossdale Equine Veterinary Journal (EVJ) Open Award was presented to Dr. Monica Venner, DipECEIM, for the paper Changing policy to treat foals with Rhodococcus equi pneumonia in the later course of disease decreases antimicrobial usage without increasing mortality rate by D. Arnold-Lehna, M. Venner, L. Berghaus, R. Berghaus and S. Giguère.

This award is given for the paper that best achieves the Equine Veterinary Journal’s (EVJ’s) mission to publish articles that influence and improve clinical practice and/or add significantly to the scientific knowledge that underpins and supports veterinary medicine in relation to the horse. The award is made in recognition of Dr. Peter Rossdale’s immense contribution to BEVA and EVJ.

The remaining BEVA awards have been postponed until 2021.
