THE POWER BEHIND THE THRONE

EPISODE 8 - THE IMPRESARIOS - Part 2

Simon & Annabel Brooks-Ward

In the second podcast with the Brooks-Wards, we talk in more depth about how central driving is to Royal Windsor and Olympia.

Annabel expands on her role behind the scenes and talks about the Extreme Driving at Olympia, which has become part of the FEI World Cup series.  It is fascinating to hear how tight the margins are, and what the organisers do to ensure that everyone is kept as safe as possible, while always remembering the spectacle has to be entertaining.    

We spoke over Zoom on Monday 11th May 2020, during lock down.
