About Us

About Us

At Bede Events, we’re dedicated to bringing you the best events in equestrian sport. We put our hearts and souls into delivering first-class eventing, and a weekend to remember for all who visit. This wouldn’t be possible without our hard-working, dedicated team.

Stuart
Stuart Buntine Director

Stuart is the man at the heart of Bede Events. Day-to-day, he deals with sponsorship, setting up event venues and course designing and building. At our events, Stuart has the responsibility of ensuring everything runs smoothly. He specialises in coming up with brand new hair-brained ideas and sourcing new avenues for the business - and the sport - to grow.

Anna Buntine Director

Anna is the friendly point of contact for volunteers, officials and judges in the run-up to our events. She is also in charge of organising the deployment of each event, and running the company accounts. In her (limited!) spare time, Anna enjoys spending time with her family.

Sophie
Sophie Pollard Event Manager

Sophie is a crucial piece of the puzzle for pulling events together. She organises trade stands and contractors, as well as overseeing the day-to-day event administration. Sophie has a passion for eventing, and competes outside of work, too.

Rowann
Rowann Raynor Office Assistant

Rowann keeps everything moving along by taking care of general office duties and admin for all of our events. She also assists Anna in dealing with officials and volunteers. Rowann especially enjoys being on site at the events, and riding her own horses.
