BBSH  - Historical Information for the Record

Download the BBSH meeting notes here (Oct 2011) 

In 2010 PSHP became The British Bred Sport Horse (BBSH) following an industry meeting where it was decided that the brand needed to be clearer. Our new logo was adopted then.

Liaison:

PSHP, in 2009, hosted a very successful meeting with delegates from Haras Nationaux/SIRE and British breed societies/studbooks to achieve a better understanding of each others' needs and develop an agreed process for managing the registrations of British horses residing or born in France.

A copy of Xavier Guibert's presentations, meeting notes are available on request

Defra Consultation:

BBSH took the lead in preparing a robust response to Defra's proposals for a New Body for Animal Health.

Lead Body for British Performance Sport Horses and Ponies (PSHP) - introduction

Called-for in the Strategy for the Horse Industry in England and Wales (2005), the Lead Body process is now underway. Read below about how it was set up and what it does.

Read below about how PSHP was set up in full consultation with the industry

At an inaugural meeting in March 2006 a wide consultation process took place to facilitate the formation of lead bodies.

Four proposed lead bodies were established:

  • Sport horses and ponies - A new body to be set up in conjunction with British Breeding 
  • Recreational horses and ponies - British Horse Society
  • Native and indigenous horses and ponies - British Horse Society
  • Racing thoroughbreds - Thoroughbred Breeders' Association

A Lead Body for Sport Horses and Ponies

British Breeding began the process of forming a Lead Body for the sport horse and pony sector with an initial meeting taking place on 24th January 2007.

Meeting notes, presentations and minutes are available on request.

On 7 June 2007 the Lead Body for British Performance Sport Horses and Ponies (PSHP) Steering Group presented their proposal to the industry.

The presentation, brochure and meeting notes are available on request.

On 16 November the Lead Body for British Performance Sport Horses and Ponies presented its recommendations back to the industry to hear their views.

Slide show and meeting notes are available on request.

The information above is for interested individuals to read about how PSHP came about and that is was driven by the Industry Satrategy. The PSHP is now known as BBSH (The British Bred Sport Horse) and is busy demonstrating its practical purpose in several ways:

  1. The British Stallion Event early each year and the Burghley Stallion Event every September
  2. The British Breeder magazine every Spring and Autumn
  3. In conjunction with British studbooks, the launch of the British Young Breeders programme, see more here
  4. Practical regional roadshows starting in 2011
