One of the very early members of KRC, Rosemary has been in many committee roles over the years including Secretary, handling bookings & membership and helping to run the Summer Shows. Later she became Chairman for some years, whilst also working for Simon Bates for eight years in the College office. Sadly she lost her horse Holly some years ago, and having promised her long-suffering husband that this would definitely be the very last horse, is now a strictly non-riding member. Rosemary is looking forward to a busy and successful year for KRC as its Chair and to meeting as many members as possible, re-establishing past friendships and making new ones along the way.
