Angela Geddes passed away peacefully in Hospital on Monday 5 September, aged 87.

Angela Geddes was born in England, where she did her A certificate with the British Horse Society.  She also hunted, and competed in showjumping at the British Royal Horse Show.

Angela moved to New Zealand in 1957 and taught at Pointways Pony Club in Auckland.  She competed to A Grade level Show Jumping. 

She owned and leased “Fanfare”, winner of 1971 Horse of the Year with Ross McVicar on board.  Angela bred a second HOY winner, “Martlet”, out of her hunter “Bidi” and by “Kwanza” (a stallion owned by Tracey Lammas’ grandfather). 

She was a member of Rotorua and Bay of Plenty Hunt and was on the committee of the Rotorua Showjumping group for many years.

Angela was a dressage judge and more so a Show Jumping judge for over 20 years, until her retirement a number of years ago.  She was also heavily involved in the Cambridge RDA.

Angela’s funeral will be held on Saturday the 10th of September 11am at the Raleigh Street Christian Centre in Leamington.

We send Angela’s family our deepest condolences.
