Getting the trade working together more among their aims.
Well-known equestrian sales agent Michael Darley was elected chair of the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) at its AGM on 31 October.
BETA’s new vice-chair is Kathryn Jaquet, managing director of Milton Keynes based retailer R B Equestrian.
Michael’s main aims during his two-year term as chairman are to grow BETA membership, support the BETA team and create more opportunities for members to socialise and network.
Running his Darley Equestrian agency – liaising between retailers and the trade supply sector - means he’s well placed to get the industry working together more, Michael told the BETA AGM.
Michael has the equestrian trade in his blood. His father Dave Darley was a director of Jeffries Saddlery for many years.
