General Assembly with Real People Again!
The EMHF held its first in-person General Assembly in three years in Ireland on May 14th and 15th. Transferred at short notice from Warsaw, we are indebted to Horse Racing Ireland and The Curragh Racecourse for stepping in to host us superbly. A party of over 50 delegates, observers and exhibitors met over two days at The Curragh. The social programme also included a tour of the Irish National Stud and Irish Racehorse Experience, a behind-the-scenes look at The Curragh racecourse, official dinner with a 'Tastes of Ireland' theme, and a great day's racing at Naas Racecourse.
Presenters included Julie Harrington (BHA CEO), Jason Morris (Racing Directr, HRI), Carol Nolan (Director of People, HRI), Brant Dunshea (Chief Regulatory Officer, BHA), Di Arbuthnot (Chair, International Forum for the Aftercare of Racehorses), Petter Johansson (Betting Manager at Swedish Betting Operator, ATG), Helena Gartner (Scandinavian Racing Authorities), Pierce Dargan (for European Student Horseracing Federation) and many more.
