The largest equestrian charity in the UK has been named as the Charity of the Year at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials 2018.
The British Horse Society (BHS) has been helping and supporting horses, their owners and riders for 70 years. Founded in 1947, The British Horse Society now has over 100,000 members. The Society is dedicated to education, equine welfare, protecting and increasing access to bridleways and equestrian routes, and safety for horse and riders.
Lynn Petersen, Chief Executive of The British Horse Society, said “We are delighted to be Charity of the Year for Badminton 2018. We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to showcase our work to the thousands of people who attend Badminton. This is a great way for us to celebrate our Platinum Anniversary, 70 years bringing people and horses together.”
Hugh Thomas, Event Director, said “We are proud to be the biggest and longest established Horse Trials in the world and we want everyone who comes here to be aware of the great work, often unsung and rarely glamorous, done by the British Horse Society.”
The Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials will take place from Wednesday 2nd May – Sunday 6th May 2018, staged within the grounds of the Badminton Estate in South Gloucestershire.
