It is with much sadness
that we hear of the death of Pat after an illness which she fought with great determination. Pat
was involved for many years with both British Driving Society (West of Scotland in particular,
but also other branches throughout Scotland) and with the Scottish Carriage Driving Association,
both as a steward and a driver.
We remember Pat driving
her beloved grey horse Fig, at many rallies and outings, with her great friend and support,
Nicola Farquhar, ever present either on the back step or sitting beside Pat. Pat was also well
known as a Ridden Dressage, Showing and Turnout Judge at many shows all over Scotland, where her
expertise, commitment and reliability was also much appreciated.
Both SCDA and BDS
Scotland owe Pat a huge debt of gratitude for her unstinting support to many events as a
steward, with all her duties carried out with efficiency and good humour. Without helpers like
Pat our sport of Carriage Driving would not exist, as no competition can run with competitors
