The BHS and TREC

As of 1 October 2014, The British Horse Society has ceased to be the governing body for TREC in the UK. The sport is now run by TREC GB.

As a charity, The British Horse Society must ensure that its funds support the core aims of education, access, safety and welfare. After thorough investigation by The British Horse Society and the TREC Competitions Advisory Committee, it was decided that the financial investment of operating as the governing body of a sport which serves such a relatively discrete number of people was an unsustainable and inappropriate use of charity funds.

BHS TREC was brought to Great Britain in the late nineties and provided riders with wonderful competitions supported by a loyal group of organisers and volunteers. These dedicated people have made it possible for TREC competitors to enjoy the sport, and we extend our thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years.

We are pleased that the legacy of TREC is now maintained by the governing body of TREC GB, who are now responsible for supporting TREC and organising its competitions and associated functions. For more information on the sport, competition results and how to get involved, please visit
