Annual Dinner and Awards Evening

We are delighted to announce the date of the Annual Dinner and Awards Evening.   This year it will be held on Thursday November 14th, at Ascot Racecourse.  We have upgraded to the Pavillion Room Suite to enable us to grow the event and save disappointing those who were unable to get a space last year.

We are thrilled that Taylor Woodcock Kingston, a sporting family office, are generously sponsoring the evening.

The Berystede Hotel & Spa in Ascot will have discounted rooms available on the evening for members that wish to stay. If you would like to look at their facilities take a look here:

More announcements and details to follow in the coming months.

The evening will be the perfect occasion to thank Cathy and wish her the best in her retirement.

Finally, Cathy and the Board would like to thank you for your messages of well-wishing for her up-coming retirement. In just the last 24 hours many of you have sent wonderful words of thanks, we echo your sentiments.

Chairman to retire

It is with some sadness that we wanted to let you know that our Chairman Cathy Butler will be retiring at the end of June this year. Cathy as served as EHOA Chairman for nearly 7 years and during this time has worked tirelessly to improve our sport for Owners. Much of her work goes unnoticed as she coordinates with all areas of the sport but the effects are experienced by all our members and many more. We have been fortunate to have someone as committed as Cathy and we would like to thank her and wish her all the very best for her future endeavours.

Cathy has done a great job empowering us as the EHOA Board and we are all excited to continue our work for owners. The Board’s roles are on our website (, if you have any questions or suggestions please don’t hesitate to reach out to the relevant Board Member.

The 2019 season has started with great excitement in the sport of eventing.  We would like to thank all of you who have join us at events and we hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes

The EHOA Board
