Our Platinum Year Celebrations

Platinum Banner 

We are celebrating our 70th anniversary!

The British Horse Society was founded in 1947, and we have grown over the past 70 years to become the largest equestrian charity in the UK with over 100,000 members.


During 70 years, the BHS has made a real impact on the lives of horses and horse owners with wide-ranging campaigns and initiatives. Our core foundations – education, welfare, access and safety – are more important than ever as they demonstrably make a difference to horses’ lives.

The BHS wouldn’t have been able to achieve what we have today without our volunteers and members. They help us to fund our work in education, equestrian welfare, access and safety, and they also give us a greater voice when lobbying government on behalf of the horse, and those who care for them.

To mark our Platinum year, we will be celebrating all year long throughout the UK.

This year we are going to acknowledge how far we have come, with our eyes firmly set on what we can achieve in the future.
