Stella Harris12th May 2023
The BSPS were sorry to learn Stella Harries passed away recently. Our condolences go to all those who were close to Stella over many years. Stella was one the country’s leading professional producers, a trainer and supporter of showing over her whole lifetime. She was the most beautiful, elegant rider of a hack, setting the highest standards that others tried to aspire to achieve.
She produced many champions, including the show pony champion Pollyanna, the daughter of Pretty Polly who our own home produced classes are named after. Not only did she produce, Stella also started the careers of many in the showing world today from her Little Barn Stables in Berkshire.
Stella was a judge on all major judging panels, being invited to all the main shows. The BSPS would like to express our sincere thanks to Stella, not only as one of most esteemed judges, but also for her massive contributions to the BSPS over so many years.
