Princess Anne has paid a visit to the Aberdeen Riding Club to focus on the long-term sustainability of the industry.

She unveiled a plaque at the club to commemorate the visit, and she received a welcome from the British Horse Society (BHS). The Aberdeen Riding Club is a non-profit organisation which offers training to equestrians from all backgrounds. Currently, the industry is struggling with staffing to be able to run at total capacity.

James Hick, Chief Executive Officer at The British Horse Society, said: “It was a real privilege to introduce our Vice Patron HRH The Princess Royal to Aberdeen Riding Club and to showcase the great work and time that is being invested into developing key skills across Scotland’s equine industry. Supporting our future workforce is particularly important as the riding industry and Scotland’s centres continue to face staff shortages. Whether our qualifications are being used to start an equestrian career or to take a career to the next level, we’re honoured to play a part in this journey and to be by the side of those who care as greatly for horses as we do.”
