On the ground

Our members and volunteers mean we’re able to attend thousands of welfare cases each year, continue to campaign for rider’s rights, and raise awareness of diseases such as strangles - amongst the rest of the work we do.

Challenge Rides

Since the launch of the first British Horse Society fundraising riding challenge in 2000, hundreds of riders have taken part in an adventure overseas. These rides open the door for our intrepid challengers to travel the world in aid of British Horse Society welfare.
