We were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Lord Patrick Tristam de la Poer Beresford: Chef d’Equipe and selector for the British Senior Eventing team 1985-1992. In his last Championship at the helm, Lord Patrick Beresford led the team to another team gold, along with an individual bronze, at the 1994 World Championship in The Hague, Netherlands.
Lord Patrick Beresford was a prominent figure, not only in the eventing community, but also in the UK polo community and he was a keen amateur jump jockey, whilst in his professional life he achieved a decorated military career.
A service will be held at Lord Waterford’s Curraghmore later this year when current restrictions are lifted. Our thoughts are with his family.
