An Evening with….GB Olympic Equestrian Sportswoman Mary King MBE
Equestrian lovers, horse owners, riders and fans of last year’s London Olympics are in for a real treat next Thursday when GB Olympic Equestrian team member, Mary King MBE, is guest speaker at an evening being held in her honour at Berwick Lodge, Bristol.
In an intimate setting, Mary will be sharing insights on her life and career as a popular event rider and equestrian sportswoman, which has seen her represent Great Britain in six Olympics and receive an MBE in March 2013 from the Princess Royal.
As well as the opportunity to meet and listen to Mary, guests can enjoy a three-course dinner fit for an Olympic athlete, created by head chef Edward Tatton.
The event is sponsored by Joules, who Mary has designed a range of equestrian-style polo, sweatshirts and jackets, Moet and Bristol Audi.
Sarah Arikan, owner of Berwick Lodge, said: “We are delighted to be hosting an ‘Evening with Mary King MBE’. I first met Mary at a masterclass she was taking and was in total awe of her. She spoke about the highs and lows of her very interesting life and career and was so passionate about what she does. Mary is a true inspiration to others to go out and get what they want in life.
“I’m absolutely thrilled that she has chosen to share her insights with our guests and I hope we will see equestrian fans of all ages make the most of the opportunity to meet Mary.”
Commenting on the forthcoming event Mary King MBE said: “I’m honoured to have been asked along to Berwick Lodge and really looking forward to meeting everyone. I hope by sharing some of my stories and experiences I can inspire others to follow their dreams.”
