to our sponsors and partners
We couldn't run Horses4Health without the incredible support we have received from not only our volunteers and participants but also our sponsors, suppliers and partners so here is an overview of some of the organisations that have helped support us along the way.
For rider safety and equine wellbeing
The British Equestrian Trade Association sits at the heart of the equestrian industry, representing more than 800 members and working for the rights of consumers while promoting rider safety and equine wellbeing.
BETA is tremendously proud to support the Horses for Health fundraising event and its mission to raise awareness of the impact that horses can have on mental health.
An organisation that is highly regarded in the world of equestrianism, BETA liaises with many of the leading riding disciplines and national bodies such as the British Equestrian Federation and Sport England. It also lobbies at government level and is regarded as a voice of authority on a wide range of subjects.
Rider safety runs throughout much of BETA’s work. Its training programmes are designed to equip retailers with the necessary skills to fit riding hats and body protectors, and the BETA Body Protector Standard that it devised and administers is a benchmark for safety throughout the world.
BETA has launched two feed assurance schemes to support equine wellbeing. The BETA NOPS Code, which helps to minimise the risk of contamination by naturally occurring prohibited substances, and the BETA scheme designed to flag up the best feeds for horses and ponies prone to equine squamous gastric disease are incredibly popular among feed manufacturers – and riders and owners.
As a trade association, BETA accepts only professionally run retail businesses as members, which are then entitled to display the BETA logo. By shopping where you see the BETA sign, you can be assured of reliable advice and quality service.
