Jane Rogers has been elected to the British Eventing Board of Directors following an vote of the organisations members.
The announcement was made at the British Event Annual General Meeting at the KBIS Young Horse Championships on Friday 29th September.
Jane has been involved in eventing for over 20 years, organising and mentoring eventing teams for her local Pony Club branch, before moving on to become their DC. She has been on the organising committee of her local BE event for 15 years undertaking several voluntary roles as well as being part of the BE Under 18 Programme since 2002, becoming Chairman of the Programme in 2010.
On her election, Jane said; “It feels great to be elected, I spoke to loads of people over the last month and got lots of feedback, there’s lots of interesting ideas going around, especially at grassroots level. I represent under 18 level anyway so going forward I’m looking forward to my first Board meeting; I think I can bring something to the Board that they’re not well represented with at the moment with under 18’s and Training & Education, particularly of riders and coaching and also for the amateurs and the grassroots riders. Looking forward to it!”
