Horse riding is a sport that anyone, regardless of age, ability or background can have a go at. The best piece of advice that could be given to a novice is not to be afraid to give it a go. Horse riding is one of the most versatile sports you can take up. Once the basics have been mastered there are numerous options to suit everyone from riding out in the countryside, to something more challenging such as polo or show jumping.

The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) is the national governing body for horse sports in the UK, affiliated to the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI), the international governing body of equestrian sports.

The BEF is an umbrella organisation representing the interests of 4.2 million riders, vaulters and carriage drivers in Great Britain via 18 independent member bodies.
