BHS At Badminton
British Horse Society will be out in force at the Mitsubishi Motors
Badminton Horse Trials on 1-4 May.
BHS Tradestand will be situated in its usual site just along from
the scoreboard. As well as carrying over 1500 books on everything
equestrian, there will be videos, gifts, toys, clothes and hi-viz
staff will be on hand to answer queries on the wide range of BHS
activities: safety on the roads, access to off road riding, BHS
exams, training and horse care. British Riding Clubs will be there
too with information about all their activities.
3 May on the BHS stand at 5.30 pm
Pippa Funnell will be launching her new book written with Kate Green
Training the Young Horse
book shows how international eventer Pippa Funnell - well known
for her ability to get the best out of the youngsters she rides
- builds up a successful bond with the young horse. Using Pippa's
personal experience and specially commissioned photographs of the
on-going training of her own horses, this book will show every rider
- whatever their discipline - how to lay the essential early groundwork.
Sunday 5 May 2.35 pm Main Arena
BHS Fellowship Awards
His Grace the Duke of Beaufort will present the BHS Fellowship to
William Blane and Rob Lovatt, who qualified at the end of last year
after a gruelling three day examination. Also receiving the award
is Christopher Bartle, the first person to receive an Honorary BHS
chief executive Kay Driver said: "We are looking forward to
meeting our members at Badminton, and we welcome the opportunity
to answer questions from members and non members alike. We very
much regret that the BHS Enclosure that has proved so popular with
members for many years will no longer be available, since Badminton
changed the arrangements last year."
