British Eventing Coach awarded Fellowship of the British Horse Society
BE Accredited and Under 18 Coach Sam York becomes a Fellow of the British Horse Society (FBHS)
The Fellowship of the British Horse Society (BHS) is the highest qualification offered within the BHS and is rated as one of the highest coaching accreditation in the world. Since its launch in 1949, only 77 people have been awarded fellowship status. The Nottinghamshire based BE coach Sam York joins an elite group of equestrians to have received the honour, including both the former and current World Class Eventing Performance Managers, Yogi Breisner and Chris Bartle along with Olympic gold medal dressage rider Carl Hester MBE, to name but a few.
