The primary purpose of national, regional and county committees is to deliver the objectives of The British Horse Society at a local level and to provide a link between members around the country and The British Horse Society Headquarters. 

The primary purpose of advisory committees is to provide advice to the Board, although they also have an important role in ensuring that The British Horse Society's policies are adapted to changing circumstances and are consistently applied. 

There is an operational framework for national, regional and local committees and separate terms of reference for advisory committees.
