"Always drink upstream from the herd"
Cawdor Cup

The prestigious Cawdor Cup in Scotland is the highest price a Clydesdale owner can aspire. Here you can read more about the background of the coveted Cawdor Cup, when and where it is awarded plus who has won it throughout the years.

History of the Cawdor Cup Cawdor Cup article in Draft Horse Journal

When the Earl of Cawdor completed his term as President he donated two fifty guinea cups to the Clydesdale Horse Society of Scotland/Great Britain and Ireland, which were to be awarded each year to the Clydesdale breed’s foremost stallion and female champion. These trophies, the most coveted price a Clydesdale stallion and female can win, are still offered today. The horsemen fortunate enough to lift one of these trophies have been few in numbers. The first year the Cawdor Cups were contested was 1892 and has been awarded almost every year since, except for a just few years due to war or disease. The successive Cawdor Cup wins by Clydesdale stallion Hiawatha and female Clydesdale Lady Lothian caused the Clydesdale Horse Society to revise the competition’s rules in 1902. Now once a Clydesdale wins the Cawdor Cup it can’t contest the trophy a second time. There is no trophy offered in the Clydesdale world whose winners have had a greater influence on the breed!

(In 2000 Shona Harrison made history as the first woman to lift the Cawdor Cup with her stallion Hillside Lorton Legend, sired by Collessie Benedictine. See picture)

Cawdor Cup today

Today the Cawdor Cup is the most coveted trophy in the Clydesdale world. Each year the champion stallion at the National Stallion Show in March is awarded the Cawdor Cup offered for stallions. The Champion Female at the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh in June is awarded the Cawdor Cup offered for a mare/filly.
