Badminton director to retire after 31 years in the role

Hugh Thomas has decided to retire from his role as event director at Badminton Horse Trials once a successor has been appointed and is in place.

“I have decided that 2019 will be my last Badminton as event director and so I will be retiring once we are able to identify a successor and get him or her in place,” he said. “I have been asked to lead the recruitment process.”

Hugh continued: “In the mean time it will very much be ‘business as usual’ and I and the Badminton team will be starting on the planning for 2020.

“I have had 31 wonderful years, working with a terrific team of people and I am very confident that they are in a good place to take the event onwards and upwards.”
