The BHS pays tribute to legend Elwyn Hartley Edwards

12th December 2007

The British Horse Society today (12 December 2007) paid tribute to distinguished equestrian writer and journalist Elwyn Hartley Edwards who has died, thought to be aged 80.

BHS Chairman Patrick Print said: "He was a brilliant journalist and one of the world's leading authorities on saddlery and the history of it. He wrote many equestrian books which were published around the globe. Elwyn was a great historian of equitation and always wrote in a forthright manner, particularly in his regular column for the Society's magazine, British Horse.
"Elwyn also served commendably on the BHS Council and as a regional chairman and was awarded the BHS Award of Merit. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him in the BHS and through the equestrian world."
