Public given chance to meet equestrian stars

  • For the first time, members of the public will be able to meet the host of equestrian stars being inducted into the British Horse Society’s (BHS) Hall of Fame as they view their commemorative plaques.

    Among the riders being added to the Hall of Fame this year are London 2012 gold medallists Ben Maher, Charlotte Dujardin and Sophie Christiansen.

    They will visit their commemorative plaques — which are displayed on the wall of the Household Cavalry’s Knightsbridge Barracks — this Wednesday (12 December)

    People hoping to meet and take photos of the equestrian celebrities should arrive at the wall, in South Carriage Drive, before 12.30pm.

    The BHS Hall of Fame celebrates the heroes and heroines — human and equine — of the equestrian world.

    “Each year a number of Britain’s most talented horses and riders are honoured,” said a spokesman for the BHS.

    “And following the outstanding success of our teams during the Games, this year’s enrolment is one of the largest since the Hall of Fame was launched in 2005.”
