New Sponsor for 2017!

Calvin Healy knows a thing or two about dressage after many an hour spent ring-side supporting his wife, Sarah and her beloved horse Bear a KWPN warmblood. – chauffeur and groom - He is an avid supporter attending lessons, camps, dressage qualifiers and competitions. 

The mathematical bit is easy for Calvin, whose day job is as a Chartered Accountant and it was this background that got him talking to Amanda Heath, South West RDO for BDSW. She says now: “I loved Calvin’s genuine interest in dressage, combined with his understanding of the absolute precision it demands. He said that his accountancy brain was well suited to it!”. 

And it was then that the idea of inviting Richardson Swift Chartered Accountants, Calvin’s firm, to be lead accountancy sponsor was born and we’re delighted they accepted. As Calvin said, “There is a real symmetry between dressage and what a good accountant does. Precision and calculation is vital to getting it spot-on, and the relationship of trust between client and adviser is key”.

Richardson Swift is a 28-strong practice in Bath, serving clients in Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. They are the trusted advisers of owner managed businesses, private individuals and their families on the full range of accountancy and tax issues which may affect them over the years.

Commenting on the new partnership with BDSW, Calvin said “I have seen first-hand the incredible role BDSW plays in supporting and educating riders and judges alike. I’m really pleased that my firm will play a prominent role in furthering BDSW’s profile in 2017”.

If you feel you need some fresh accountancy ideas or just a bit of advice, do speak to Calvin when you see him, or else get in touch at or 01225 325580
