Deirdre Pirie passed away

Yesterday the news reached us that former US-four-in-hand driver Deirdre Pirie has passed away aged 78. Pirie was one of the founders of the combined driving sport in the United States of America and helped many people in various ways.

Deirdre had to live with permanent oxygenation for many years already. This very strong lady represented the USA at every FEI World Four-in-Hand Championship from Ascot 1980 to Stockholm 1990.
