In June, Amanda Greig from Bedforshire became the 10,000th member in the BHS eastern region.
Amanda loans a horse called Lola at her local riding stables, and became a member of the BHS after a friend at the stables recommended she join for personal injury insurance. After looking into it and speaking to the society, Amanda was delighted to find out about the work the BHS does including providing access and bridleways, and running events and training.
“I realised that the BHS was also a place to refer to if I had any questions, particularly as I am so new to riding”, says Amanda. Amanda was welcomed to the BHS with wine to celebrate being our 10,000th member.
