EHOA hospitality on offer – pop along to say hello. It is located on the edge of the main arena, collecting ring end for show jumping. If you can spare an hour to help, it would be hugely appreciated.

Thank you to everyone that came to Badminton to use the hospitality, it was good to see you all. The Coronation drinks and canapés evening was a success and we are looking to do something similar at Burghley to celebrate the Association’s 25th year anniversary. Keep an eye out for more details in the Summer.

 If you joined or renewed your membership I am slowly making my way through all the applications, there are a few, so please bare with me. If you do not receive your membership pack by the end of the month, do get in touch and give me a nudge – I won’t be offended!

Huge congratulation to our grassroots members that completed, an accolade to compete on the hallowed Badminton turf. If you haven’t received your competition rosette, do get in touch.

Delighted to say that in the 5* we had a number of EHOA owned horses competing and a good number featured in the top 10 – well done to all connections.

Good luck if your are out and about eventing over the coming days – might need your brolly at certain times!
