How we're funded

Lottery funding, via UK Sport, helps develop elite riders for future success in the three Olympic and one Paralympic disciplines of Jumping, Dressage, Eventing and Para-Equestrian Dressage. The BEF applies for Lottery funding, on behalf of our member organisations. This funding has establised a lottery-backed system that gives riders with potential the opportunity to fulfil their talent. This should enable the sport to continue to maximise its successes on the European, World and Olympic and Paralympic stages.

Additional Lottery funding via Sport England supports our non-Olympic disciplines excel programmes, riding clubs and organisations in encouraging people to take up equestrian sports, supporting volunteers and helping to develop riding facilities.

In addition, a range of companies and organisations support the World Class Programme and Equestrian Team GBR.
