British Equestrian (BEF) have today released a response to the comprehensive #HorsesForAll report, a research study into the lived experiences of underrepresented communities in equestrian activity.

The report is the result of four months of research across interviews, forums, experience days and a nationwide survey with over 800 respondents which gave a huge amount of data and insight. The resulting 89-page document highlighted nine key themes and set out 11 recommendations for BEF to consider and incorporate into an equality, diversity and inclusion strategy.

Helen West, Chief Executive for British Eventing said; “We are committing to leading from the front and encouraging a culture that actively encourages diversity and inclusivity. British Eventing are proactively developing alignments that can assist us reach these objectives. We recently delivered a The Howden Way Academy [BE’s training framework] session to a group of diverse riders from Cool Ridings. It was such an inspiring day, that was a success on so many levels. Our focus is unwavering on ensuring that we create a welcoming and nurturing environment for riders from underrepresented groups that have an interest in eventing. We applaud the undertaking of the report, its findings and recommendations.”
