Liz Ormesher

Event Director

Liz is the Event Director for the National Equine Show. With 20 years experience in sales, marketing and event management, Liz joined the Raccoon team last year to launch the exciting new National Equine Show.

Luckily for her new role Liz is a passionate equestrian and so bringing her passion for all things equine to launch this show is a dream come true. When she’s not working she can be seen charging around the great outdoors with her young horse and her partner and 2 young children. She also loves photography and yoga and when a spare minute arises she might be seen squeezing in a run (plod) or bike ride around the country roads or even throwing a few weights around.
