BE announce new Regional Coordinator for the Central North

BE LogoBritish Eventing are extremely pleased to announce that Sarah Hamlyn will be taking on the role of British Eventing’s Regional Coordinator for the Central Northern region as of the 1st January 2011.

Although from a non-equestrian family, Sarah, Portsmouth-born but now North-Wales based, has always had a keen interest in Eventing fitting it in alongside her work and home life. She currently competes two horses at BE events and has competed up to Advanced level.

Sarah brings with her to this role a wealth of experience in addition to academic and practical qualifications, including a Masters in Equine Science and BHSII and BHS SM qualifications. Following her Masters she obtained a role teaching at several Equestrian colleges, while continuing to move up the BHS ladder.

This is not Sarah’s first role with British Eventing; in 2000 she was employed as the BE Training and Development Officer and remained in this role for seven years. During this time she was involved in the creation of the cross country course builders and designers lists, the nationwide rollout of fence judge training, the development of a volunteer data base, the formalisation of the recruitment, induction, training and CPD of BE officials and the development of the UKCC.

Sarah said of her new role: “I am delighted to continue my involvement with BE as Regional Co-ordinator for Central North. Without dedicated and passionate organisers we would not be fortunate enough to enjoy our wonderful sport. This is a crucial role; acting as the interface between the events. the organisers and BE. I am really looking forward to bringing my experience as a competitor, my skills as a facilitator and coach and my love of the sport to the role and look forward to meeting organisers that I do not know and re-acquainting myself with those that I do in 2011.”

British Eventing Chief Executive, Mike Etherington-Smith said of Sarah: “Sarah’s broad experience gained from her previous role as BE Training and Development officer in addition to the passion she has for the sport made her stand out as an excellent candidate for the role."
