The Different Types of Membership Explained
There are several different types of British Eventing membership to suit your interest in the sport.
You can ride and own a horse with British Eventing as either a Full Member, joining for a year, or by purchasing a Day Pass Membership which entitles you to buy passes to compete with BE. Your first step to obtaining your membership is by completing a free Associate registration, whereby all your details are recorded on the BE database and you can then go on to choose to purchase a membership type. You can remain on the database as an Associate and get the general emails and information on events that are sent out to members. If you are a parent or guardian of an under 16 member, you need to join as an Associate so that we have your details on record.
If in any doubt contact the BE Membership Team on 02476 698857
