Facilities and Clubs

Participation in equestrian sport is supported through a vast range of facilities and clubs including riding and equestrian centres, show grounds, livery yards, trekking centres and colleges, as well as Riding and Pony Clubs and a variety of discipline-specific environments.

Good quality, well managed facilities and clubs are vital to encourage and sustain participation at all levels and provide riders, drivers and vaulters with the necessary environment to realise their full potential. The BEF has worked with all of its Member Bodies to produce the National Facilities Strategy for Equestrian Sport and Leisure in support of this overall aim. This section of the website gives further detail and updates and also provides access to a wide range of information, advice and guidance on developing and managing successful equestrian related facilities and clubs.
