New President for ABRS

James Gray MP, shadow minister for the countryside, was elected President of the Association of British Riding Schools (ABRS) at their forty-eighth annual conference and dinner, last Monday 14th October. He takes over from Harry Greenway MP who held the post for a number of years.

More than 100 riders, proprietors, instructors and managers attended the conference, which provided a stimulating programme of presentations including ‘horse passports’ by James Gray MP, ‘carrying out a risk assessment’ by Charlie Lane and ‘using riding holidays to grow the market’ by successful riding holiday business proprietor Wendy Hofstee of Unicorn Horse Trails.

Duncan Brown Chairman of the ABRS said: “The excellent turnout for our conference reflects the increasing awareness amongst riding school proprietors of the importance of working together to represent the interests of the professional.”
