Giving Tuesday | A Global Day of Giving

1 Dec 2020

Categories:

Giving Tuesday is a day where everyone, everywhere can do something to support the causes that mean something to them.

Giving Tuesday is celebrated on the Tuesday following the well-known shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday - in 2020 it falls on 1 December 2020. It is a day to give back to a cause close to your heart. Donate money, volunteer your time, share a campaign or organise a (virtual) coffee morning fundraiser.

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

Every year with the support of our members and volunteers we help protect, improve and build a better future for horses and those who care for them.

Find out how can you support the BHS

Support a campaign

The effects of a second lockdown have been devastating for riding centres. Going into winter with drastically reduced income due to Covid-19 restrictions, our riding centres, with thousands of horses to feed and care for, are facing a worrying future.


Donations from generous BHS members and supporters helped us raise £80,000 to support our Riding Schools, but the crisis is far from over! With your support we can continue to make a difference for riding schools around the UK.

To donate £5, please text HORSE to 70507 or donate whatever you can online:

Share a message

Help us to educate the public. The BHS is urging drivers to be more careful when passing horses on the road and encouraging them to adhere to its Dead Slow campaign messages.

With an increasing number of reported incidents involving horses and vehicles, we're campaigning to make drivers aware of what to do when they encounter horses on the road.
