Event Horse Owners Association media release

Letter from EHOA Board to British Eventing Members

Dear British Eventing Member,

The Event Horse Owners Association (EHOA) was formed in 1998 to be the voice for owners in eventing; over the years it has built up its membership and now has a significant influence on the way in which the sport is run.

As a result of our close collaboration with, and support from BE, a member of our Board has a seat on BE’s Sports Committee, so enabling the EHOA, through its representative, to raise any Ownership queries with them.

The EHOA is run by owners for owners and is administered by a Board of volunteers whose aim is, above all, to help make eventing fun.

We run Hospitality tents at many events (see our website www.ehoa.org for details) where our members can meet old, and make new, friends in a warm and friendly environment. We provide refreshments, newspapers and, in some cases, at major events, TV monitors. Successes are celebrated and when things do not go according to plan there are kindred spirits present to offer support!

Each member annually receives a training voucher which can be used with a variety of top trainers and riders, allowing our grassroots riders access to some of the stars of the sport, thus giving them the opportunity to progress further than might otherwise be the case.

We hold an AGM – to be held again at The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials this year – and an annual Dinner, to which owners can take their riders, at which EHOA and BE awards are presented.

Our website contains much information and, with Facebook and Twitter, plays a large part in our communications. Twice a year we produce a printed Newsletter for use in our hospitality tents. We provide guidance leaflets on ownership issues, and our Board members are available to help where they can.

Our Membership categories are as follows:

  • Owner Rider (Riding your own horse) £42
  • Owner (Someone else riding your horse) £66
  • Joint ( as above 2 People at the same address) £90


It is easy to join us! You can join on line and payment is by Direct Debit.

If you are not already a member of the EHOA why not join now? You will be most welcome and we very much look forward to seeing you.

If you have any questions about membership at all please contact Alex Van Tuyll on 07977 207188.

With best wishes for a successful 2019,

The EHOA Board
