The British Horse Society launches Hardship Fund for BHS Approved Riding Schools

| Return|

The British Horse Society (BHS), has launched the BHS Approved Centre Hardship Fund to help support riding schools affiliated to the charity through the Covid-19 pandemic.

The fund, launched on Friday 17 April, is specifically aimed at BHS Approved Riding Schools financially impacted by the pandemic, and designed to support any costs which go towards the health and wellbeing of the horses and ponies under their care.  

Grants from the fund will be allocated based on a payment of £750 per BHS Approved Riding School. The fund has been made available from several sources, including BHS National, Regional and County Committees, which work closely with BHS Approved Riding Centres. The British Horse Society has also accessed a number of its own restricted funds, held aside for welfare specific purposes.

The BHS has also waived all Approved Centre membership fees for the next 12 months and will be launching a donations appeal in the coming weeks to help provide further support.

All BHS Approved Riding Schools should have been received details on how to apply for the funding and can contact the BHS Approvals team on [email protected] or call 024768 40500 if not.
