EHOA Chairman retires

Message from the EHOA:

It is with some sadness that we wanted to let you know that our Chairman Cathy Butler will be retiring at the end of June this year. Cathy as served as EHOA Chairman for nearly seven years and during this time has worked tirelessly to improve our sport for Owners.


Much of her work goes unnoticed as she coordinates with all areas of the sport but the effects are experienced by all our members and many more. We have been fortunate to have someone as committed as Cathy and we would like to thank her and wish her all the very best for her future endeavours.

Cathy has owned horses with a number of International riders and William Fox-Pitt commented “Cathy loves her horses and the sport.  She is passionate about doing things properly and has done a fabulous job for the EHOA”.

Cathy has done a great job empowering us as the EHOA Board and we are all excited to continue our work for owners. The Board’s roles are on our website (, if you have any questions or suggestions please don’t hesitate to reach out to the relevant Board Member.

The 2019 season has started with great excitement in the sport of eventing.  We would like to thank all of you who have join us at events and we hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes

The EHOA Board
