Chairman of British Riding Clubs dies
It was with much sadness that the Trustees
of the BHS and the members of the British Riding Clubs National Executive Committee learnt that Laurie Punnett died on Thursday
BHS Chairman Patrick Print said "Whether
it was as a Trustee of the BHS, Chairman of the BRC NEC or Chairman of Gower Riding Club, Laurie's commitment was total.
“In his element as a cross-country
controller, witty and informed in the commentary box and totally dedicated as 'chef d'equipe’ for his wife Sarah, Laurie
put his heart into the Riding Club movement, earning the respect and affection of all those who reaped the benefit. I will
not be the only one mourning the loss of a very good friend today."
