Changes to senior British Horse Society personnel

  • The British Horse Society (BHS) is undergoing further restructuring, with the departure of three directors.

    Margaret Linington-Payne (director of standards), Gill Evans (finance) and Alison Field (HR) have all taken redundancy.

    “I wanted to bring in more experience and more skills,” said chief executive Lynn Petersen. “We need to grow and develop.”

    These departures follow that of BHS chairman Phil Wadey last May and former chief executive Graham Cory, who left suddenly in the autumn (news, 4 October).

    Four new roles are being advertised — director of education, director of equine policy, director of regional services and head of equestrian services.
