The British Horse Society
BHS At Badminton

The British Horse Society will be out in force at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials on 1-4 May.

The 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 safety gear.

BHS 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.

Friday 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

This 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 Fellowship.

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."
