Yogi with Michael Spackman 22 Feb 17

In memoriam: Michael Spackman 1926 - 2017

We are sad to hear that Michael Spackman, husband of Veronica, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family yesterday February 21, 2017 at the age of 91.

Michael and Veronica were the indomitable husband and wife organising team of the very popular Stilemans and Iping Horse Trials for over 30 years. Both also organised Tweseldown Horse Trials in the ‘90’s. Stilemans Horse Trials ceased in 2009 and Iping ran last in 2014.

Michael was a much loved character in the eventing community and the undeniable main support to Veronica who had her name ‘above the door’ as the organiser of all those events. A Life Member of British Eventing, Michael received a BE Award in 2004 for his services to the sport.
