Horse Society to award Jubilee Medal at Badminton
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.
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.
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."
