Dr Bechtolsheimer's deep passion for our sport and his love of all creatures, but horses in particular, were at the heart of his artful horsemanship which touched so many of us and will continue to inspire. Back in April 2020 we remembered 'Dr B' with a tribute from some of the leading figures in the sport, reflecting on the person he was and the extensive legacy he leaves behind.
