The British Horse Society will welcome some of our brightest stars from London 2012 into its Equestrian Hall of Fame in a ceremony to be held at the Household Cavalry's Knightsbridge Barracks next Wednesday (12 December) – and you could be there!
As part of the ceremony, a number of the stars (past and present) will visit their commemorative plaques which are displayed on the wall of the Household Cavalry's barracks in South Carriage Drive, Knightsbridge, overlooking Hyde Park. Members of the public are welcome to come along, grab a picture or two and show their support to our top riders. Anyone wishing to attend should arrive at the wall 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. 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.
Amongst those to be honoured will be Showjumping Gold medallist Ben Maher, Team and Individual Dressage Olympic Champion Charlotte Dujardin and the Golden girl of the Paralympics, three times Gold medallist Sophie Christiansen. So if you fancy a glimpse of the stars and their medals get yourself along to the ‘BHS Wall of Fame’ next Wednesday.
