It is your Society - be a part of it

If we did not have our enthusiastic members and dedicated volunteers we would be nothing and fall far short of our goals. Luckily for us we do, and so we are able to attend thousands of welfare cases each year, continue to campaign for rider’s rights, and raise awareness of diseases such as strangles.

There are so many ways in which you can become involved that you will be spoilt for choice. From donating a day to help on our show stands, to fundraising in your local area or becoming a BHS Volunteer Officer. Whatever your interests, experience or location we have an opportunity for you.

The majority of our volunteers take on a Volunteer Officer role, these roles give you the opportunity to make a lasting difference for horses and people in your area. You can find out more about the opportunities on this website, including our current vacancies.

If you are interested in finding out what a national charity’s headquarters accomplish every day, why not volunteer with us at Equestrian House.

If you are unsure about the way you want to get involved or don't have the time to committee to a specific role you can join our casual volunteer database. This database contains the details of members who are happy to be called upon if we need their help. The roles are varied and can be anything from helping at an event to completing a bridleway survey for your area. If you are interested in joining our casual volunteer team get in touch.

Interested in equestrian shows and competitions? Whether you have hidden desire to be a fence judge, show secretary or just fancy helping people have a fun day out being part of the British Riding Clubs Volunteer Club could be for you. You will have an exciting opportunity to volunteer in a range of roles at our National Championships.

Perhaps the most exciting way you can get involved is by taking part in one of our fundraising Challenge Rides. Choose from nine countries including Peru, India, Iceland and Lesotho in Southern Africa, to experience the ride of a lifetime.

With more than 900 volunteers involved in our work it really is your Society, so be a part of the action.
