Princess Anne will be attending next year’s BETA International.

The Princess Royal will be given a tour of the halls and introduced to members of the equestrian industry, including young entrepreneurs and apprentice and student saddlers, on the last day of the show.

BETA International organiser Claire Thomas said: “We are extremely honoured that The Princess Royal has accepted our invitation to visit the show. She is held in high regard throughout the equestrian world for her charity work and vast knowledge and enthusiasm for all things equine – in addition to her own abilities as a horsewoman.”

The Princess is connected to more than 300 charities, including positions as president of the Riding for the Disabled Association and perpetual master of the Worshipful Company of Saddlers.

BETA International 2020 takes place at the NEC, Birmingham from January 19-21.
