AN EVESHAM horse rehabilitation centre has been crowned a winner at an award ceremony dubbed the ‘rural Oscars’.

Claire Dyson Equine Water Treadmill and Rehabilitation Centre in Cleeve Prior was awarded the Rural Enterprise award at the 2024 Countryside Alliance Awards.

The awards – now in their 17th year – recognise rural businesses across five categories, including ‘best local food’, ‘best butcher’, ‘best pub’, ‘best rural enterprise’, and ‘best village shop/ post office’.

These businesses are deemed to have gone the extra mile within their communities, supporting the local economy and championing local goods and services.

Thousands of nominations from around the country were whittled down via a public vote, with the final few advancing to the finals.

The winner of each category will go on to represent the Midlands in the national champions reception at the House of Lords in June, competing against other finalists from around England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.




Sarah Lee, Countryside Alliance director of policy, said: “We are proud to be honouring these exceptional rural businesses in the Midlands, and the people behind them who are passionate about providing quality goods, services, and employment to rural communities and beyond.

“Running a business in a rural community isn’t easy, and it’s so important to celebrate the valued role these rural enterprises have in their communities.


“We look forward to seeing them in London at the national champions reception.”
