The BHS was sorry to hear of the death of Lady Audrey Townley FBHS, who passed away aged 96 on Tuesday 30 September 2014.
A stalwart of high standards in everything she did, Lady Townley was a popular figure who left a legacy of dedication and enthusiasm among her students.
One of the BHS's earliest members, the published author gained her FBHS in 1954, being one of only 20 Fellows at the time.
After passing on her own hugely successful Borwick Riding School, and training with acclaimed figures such as Captain Eddie Goldman, the eventing and dressage enthusiast based herself in the north of Scotland but travelled widely through Scotland and northern England to train and coach others, never letting her students lose sight of the need for everything to be done correctly.
Lady Townley retired in her late 60s, when she moved to Dalbeattie in Scotland. She will be fondly remembered by all who knew her.
