Earlier this year, the BHS in the South West reached another milestone membership figure and it was Aisha Hussain from Devon who became our 15,000th BHS Member!
Regional Chairman, Gill Longhurst, Devon Chairman, Sarah Howard and Regional Manager, Julie Garbutt went to meet Aisha to present her with a certificate and some BHS goodies along with a celebratory bottle of bubbles.
Aisha, who had ridden some years ago in Staffordshire, came back to riding last year through the ‘Take Back the Reins’ project and having moved to Devon took up the opportunity to get back in the saddle at BHS Approved Budleigh Salterton Riding School.
Aisha would eventually like to own her own horse but decided that learning more about horse riding and care before she took the plunge into horse ownership was the right way to go.
She has already taken the BHS Ride Safe Award and is planning to take the BHS Stage 1 qualification some time soon so that will be one lucky horse who finds themselves with Aisha as an owner in the future.
In the meantime, Aisha favourite horse to ride is ‘Cassie’ who took centre stage in our photo shoot on the day.
Thank you to Aisha for joining The British Horse Society and we wish you every success in the future!
