Trustee co-opted to British Horse Society Board
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

term of office as Chairman and therefore stands down from the Board.
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.
says his main interest is in uniting the horse world, and during
his term of office he says he wants "..to bring the ordinary
rider and trainer to the fore, promoting the Society's Instructors'
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'.
