British Equestrian is the National Governing Body for horse sports in the UK, affiliated to the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI), the international governing body of equestrian sports. It exists to provide leadership, vision and purpose in steering the direction of equestrianism. Its patron is HRH The Duchess of Cornwall.
British Equestrian is an umbrella organisation representing the interests of 3 million riders, vaulters and carriage drivers in Great Britain via 18 independent member bodies (14 members and four associates). Established in 1972, it is the largest representative body within the equestrian industry.
As a National Governing Body, British Equestrian works on policy issues with the FEI. It coordinates the British calendar of international events, disciplinary procedures and doping control, and oversees the training of British international judges, stewards, vets and course designers.
At home, it plays an active role in representing the common interests of its member bodies to organisations such as the British Olympic Association, British Paralympic Association, SportsAid, the Sport and Recreation Alliance, DCMS and Defra.
British Equestrian is responsible for distributing government funding to the equestrian sports. Funding from UK Sport and Sport England supports British Equestrian’s work, from developing elite riders aiming to win medals for Great Britain to encouraging complete beginners from a range of backgrounds to get involved. Funding support is also provided by Sport Scotland for horsescotland, aligned to British Equestrian.
