Alec Lochore has taken on the role of Event Director at Blair Castle International Horse Trials and Country Fair. Alec is very familiar with the event, having competed at the first ever Blair three-day event and been a Technical Delegate at for the past two years. He will be assisted in the role by Hannah Wilkins, who has been promoted from her previous organiser's position to Assistant Director.

"I am delighted to accept this new role, and am excited to have the opportunity to build on the already excellent reputation of the event. I am looking forward to working with Hannah and the rest of the team at Blair" said Alec, who will also continue to run other events through his company, Musketeer Event Management.

Sarah Phillips, who has been the Event Director since 2002, is moving to Warwickshire to take on a new position at the British Horse Society as Senior Executive for British Riding Clubs and Competitions.
