The British Horse Society British Horse Society to award Jubilee Medal at Badminton

The British Horse Society will present one of its valued Golden Jubilee Medals to Mrs Pamela Gormley at the BHS stand at 12 noon on Saturday 3 May during the Badminton Horse Trials. The medals were struck in honour of Her Majesty the Queen's Golden Jubilee last year and are presented to mark special achievements.

Mrs Gormley, from Farnborough in Hampshire, was originally a member of the Institute of the Horse, transferring to the British Horse Society when it was set up in 1947, later becoming a Life Member. Since then she has been an active volunteer, spending a great deal of time ensuring a safe equestrian crossing over the A3 when it first became a dual carriageway, campaigning for safe off-road riding and supporting the cause of horse welfare in the fight against ragwort. She was also District Commissioner for the Hursley Hambledon Branch of the Pony Club for fifteen years.

BHS Chairman, Pat Campbell, who will present the Medal said, "We are delighted to be able to mark Mrs Gormley's achievements as a BHS volunteer by awarding her a Golden Jubilee Medal. It is also very fitting that the presentation should take place at Badminton as Pamela owned the home-bred Master Question, ridden by Julian Seaman at Badminton and Burghley. Julian is now Badminton's press officer. We hope that he will be able to escape the attentions of the press office to attend the presentation."
