Alex Van Tuyll

Membership Secretary/Data

Hi, I’m the membership secretary for the EHOA. It’s a role I fit in around everything else I do. I work at British Equestrian and will be at some events throughout 2023.

I manage our EHOA membership list, contacts all members by email and manage the GDPR. Look out for me at events and in our hospitality marquees in 2023.

We asked Alex a few more questions to add to her eventing CV

“Archie”

Name of your horse, who rides it and how long have you have owned it?

Count Onyx, stable name: Archie, ridden now by Aaron Millar

What level was it competing at last year and your aim for it this year?

4th in his first CCI3*L at Ballindenisk. Aiming for Blenheim 8/9 and longshot Boekelo

What is your horses favourite thing to do or eat?

Good appetite for all treats particularly polos and carrots. Loves some sweet tea on his winter holidays! If you’re not careful he will help himself!

Why did you get into owning an event horse and what do you enjoy most about it?

Been involved in Eventing since year dot and evented myself until work took over. Cousin Fiona rode at the Olympics in 1992 and I went to The World Equestrian Games as her helper – just to carry the water buckets! The camaraderie within the sport is fantastic; as we know there are always highs and lows and sharing it with fellow, like minded people always helps. This why the EHOA was started back in 1998, it created an environment for Owners to celebrate their successes, gain recognition and have somewhere to sit!

Linda Allan

Chairman

A life-long equestrian, and particularly show-jumping, enthusiast, I first became closely involved in affiliated eventing when I joined the syndicate formed to retain Arctic Soul for Gemma Tattersall. That has been such fun and also very educational, and has led to Gemma and I acquiring two further eventing prospects, one a horse at novice level and the other a youngster yet to compete.

Having retired, I now have time on hand to become practically involved in the sport rather than being just an avid spectator. In addition to EHOA activities, I also plan to spend time volunteering as a fence judge or other event roles.

We asked Linda a few questions to add to her eventing CV

“Johan-some”

Name of your horse, who rides it and how long have you have owned it?

Johan-some ridden by Gemma Tattersall

What level was it competing at last year and your aim for it this year?

4th Le Lion D’Angers 2021 now at 4* Level. Aims this year to progress at this level. Showjumps in his spare time up to 1m 40

What is your horses favourite thing to do or eat?

Stable name Yo-Yo as likes to frisk energetically when fresh. Loves interaction with people and loves an audience. In the field loves rolling in mud and cantering around playing. In stables loves to undo rugs and bandages as well stable bolts!

Why did you get into owning an event horse and what you enjoy most about it?

Linda first became an owner in the Artic Soul syndicate in 2013. She now has two more youngsters to add to her string. Linda says being a member of the EHOA has meant she now has a fabulous wide network of eventing friends to enjoy the sport with both in UK and abroad.
