It is with much sadness that we report the death of Peter Bridson.

Peter has been a tremendous support to British Carriagedriving for many years. His legal expertise has been of immense benefit to the organisation and he gave freely of his time and knowledge while also acting as Company Secretary since 1998.

Peter had an active interest in Safety within the sport and joined the Safety Committee in 1999, taking over as Chairman in 2005.

He also acted as a BEF Disciplinary and BEFAR Chairman in addition to panel chairman for the 2012 Olympics for equine doping and human selection.

As an experienced Technical Delegate, he officiated at many events around the country and frequently travelled up to Scotland. In addition to acting as TD, he had also been an event organiser, even running the National Championships.

He had a strong connection to the Windsor Park Equestrian Club, where he took on the role of Chairman 15 years ago.

In his professional life, Peter was a managing partner and head of dispute resolution with the London firm DWFM Beckman where he acted for claimants and defendants both in the UK and overseas. He retired from practice in June 2021.

Peter will be greatly missed by all who knew him and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
