We are honoured to share the news of the memorial service for the late Linda Whetstone, to celebrate her life and reflect on the incredible legacy she leaves behind.

After the sudden and sad passing of our Chair, Linda Whetstone, at the end of last year, we were overwhelmed by the response from our members, who wanted to express their condolences and share their fond memories.  It was clear that Linda was held in the highest regard, commanding such love and respect from the dressage community for the immense contribution she made to our sport.

Due to the pandemic, it was not possible to accommodate everyone at Linda’s funeral in January, but the Whetstone Family have very kindly arranged a memorial service on Tuesday 18 October at 12 noon, hosted at St Marylebone Parish Church, 17 Marylebone Road, London, NW1 5LT. 

For those unable to attend in person, the service will be live streamed, which can be accessed below:


The Order of Service is also available to view online for those watching the live stream:


Additionally there is a back up link available if anyone requires this during the service, as following:


We paid tribute to Linda at our Winter Championships last month, when we announced that the inaugural Linda Whetstone Memorial Trophy would be awarded later this year at the National Championships, for an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to dressage.
