Emma Wardell, formerly the Equestrian Showing Manager for Grandstand Media Ltd, will gradually migrate to her new role following the appointment of a new Equestrian Co-ordinator to support the Equestrian Team. Laura Pitcher, formerly Equestrian Showjumping Manager will take on the role of Equestrian Manager, incorporating both Showing and Showjumping.

Helena Pettit, Grandstand Group Managing Director said: “We are delighted to see Emma promoted to Event Director for the Grandstand Media Ltd events. She has been with the company since 2011 and knows the shows so well it seemed like an obvious progression. I have no doubt that Emma will excel in her new role, supporting each department in the company.”
