British Eventing offer helping hand to battle rising costs – making flexibility more affordable

British Eventing is conscious of the current climate and the increasing costs we are all facing. In response to this we will be reducing the cost of our PAYG (Pay As You Go) option from today (28 April 2022).

We are very aware of the challenges our members are experiencing, with the soaring price of fuel and inflation set to reach an all-time high. We want to do everything we can to help members continue to enjoy competing in the sport they love and will be introducing these reduced PAYG fees as a gesture of support. Those members who have already bought PAYG memberships this season will be contacted and provided with vouchers in recompense.

“With the spiraling cost of fuel and rapid rise in the rate of inflation we very much wanted to help in any way we could to minimise the pressure this has put on our members,” said British Eventing, Chief Executive Helen West.

“Reducing the cost of the PAYG membership and associated run fee was something that we could implement immediately, and the Board were in resounding agreement when it was discussed with them earlier this week that it would be a good thing to do. We hope this goes some way towards helping and I want to reassure our members that we will continue to look at any other ways we can afford to assist further.”

Pay As You Go membership was introduced at the beginning of 2022 to offer a level of flexibility for members. It is ideal for those trying eventing for the first time, those exploring stepping up to the next level and those who only want to compete a few times per year.

From today, 28 April 2022, we have reduced all PAYG membership by 50% and the run fee has also been heavily reduced.

With the new prices, the cost for an owner/rider combination having an initial run with BE is reduced from the previous listing of £75 to just £40, and £10 per run thereafter.
