EHOA Chairman

Dear Member,

You may already be aware but for those who do not know, Cathy Butler, the Chairman of the EHOA will be stepping down at the end of this season.  We, therefore, are seeking to find a person to take over the Chairmanship of the Association from November 2018.

The ideal candidate should have a good knowledge and deep affection for the Sport, a desire to support the sport and in particular to encourage Ownership within the sport.

This requires diplomacy, good communication skills, perseverance, but above all an understanding of the wider issues beyond those of just Ownership.



Primary responsibility – To oversee and co-ordinate the effective running of the Association and to represent the public face of the EHOA.

To do this the Chairman is required to do the following:-


Chair the AGM – (usually this is held at Burghley Horse Trials in September)

  • Chair 4 Board Meetings annually.
  • Host the Annual Dinner & Awards. (Usually held in November)
  • To be responsible with the Treasurer for the financial affairs of the Association.


  • Represent the interest of the Association with other Member Bodies of the Sport, such as BEF, BE, FEI, BEOA,ERA, HTSG. (The Chairman does not sit on or regularly attend meetings on any of these bodies but may be consulted from time to time to raise the EHOA’s voice on issues which effect owners).
  • To sign the Annual Accounts.
  • To represent and evolve the voice of Owners in the Sport and to start new initiatives where required.
  • To support the Members of the Board with their individual responsibilities and in particular:-
  1.  Support the Hospitality Director in our relationships with Event Organisers.
