The East of England British Horse Society welcomes its members to a member’s social day on the 28 March at the National Stud, Newmarket.
The day starts at 9.30am with tea and coffee and a warm welcome by BHS Volunteers and the Regional Manager.
We will enjoy hearing from BHS Directors Alan Hiscox & Mark Weston. Alan on our quest to improve rider safety. Mark will explain what 2026 means and how we can improve our off-road riding. Janice Wyatt will enlighten those of us up for a challenge!
Our special guest speaker is Dr David Marlin. Who will talk about threats to the competition/modern horse.
David’s main areas of professional interest are exercise physiology, nutrition, fitness, training, performance, thermoregulation competition strategy, transport and respiratory disease. From 1990 until 2005 David held the position of Senior Scientist and Head of Physiology at the Animal Heath Trust. David has worked as a consultant to the British Equestrian Teams since 1994 and has worked in conjunction with the FEI on key subjects at the Atlanta and Beijing Olympic Games.
We will also enjoy a sociable lunch and tour of the stud. How lovely to see the new seasons foals in the spring. (can’t promise the sunshine thought)
