The British Horse Society New Trustee co-opted to British Horse Society Board

The British Horse Society is delighted to announce that Patrick Print FBHS has been co-opted onto the Board of Trustees following his appointment as Chairman of the Training & Education Advisory Group. He replaces Islay Auty FBHS who has completed her three-year term of office as Chairman and therefore stands down from the Board.

Like Mrs Auty, Patrick is a Fellow of the BHS, gaining his qualification in the same year as his predecessor, 1995. The 47 year old freelance trainer teaches both at home and abroad, is a BHS Chief Examiner and a British Riding Clubs Master Judge. He was also the BHS Scottish National Coach from 1982-87 and then chaired the Scottish Training Committee from 1987 for a number of years.

Patrick says his main interest is in uniting the horse world, and during his term of office he says he wants " bring the ordinary rider and trainer to the fore, promoting the Society's Instructors' qualifications."

Based just outside Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, Patrick owns a registered 5-year-old Lusitano Stallion called Relampago who he rides "just for fun". The horse was imported from Portugal last year and his name, derived from the Portuguese and Spanish language, means 'streak of lightning'.
