We are sad to hear that the first in an honourable line of lady Badminton winners, Margaret Hough has died recently, aged 86. Her win on Bambi was at the sixth ever Badminton in 1954.
Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this sad time.
“It was ground-breaking for a woman to win it,” Margaret’s son, Peter Gleave, told Horse and Hound “One or two of the men at the time looked down at women having a go and doing well so it really was.”
