The British Horse Society was founded in 1947, and we have grown over the past 70+ years to become the largest and most influential equestrian charity in the UK with over 115,000 members.
The British Horse Society is a registered charity – numbers 210504 and SC038516 – and its activities are overseen by the Charity Commission. The Patron of the Society is Her Majesty The Queen.
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.
