Paying tribute to Her Majesty The Queen

On behalf of The British Horse Society and British Riding Clubs, I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to His Majesty, King Charles III, our Vice-Patron Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal and all members of the Royal Family at this deeply saddening time.

Her Majesty graciously agreed to become Patron of The British Horse Society, the same year she became Queen, and she continued to honour the Society with her patronage throughout her life. This seventy-year relationship has been a constant source of pride for us all.

With great dedication and devotion, she has gifted all those of us who love horses with a truly admirable legacy. As a true and passionate equestrian, Her Majesty will be sorely missed by our whole community.


James Hick, Chief Executive of The British Horse Society
