Board meeting web notes - Aug 14

 Directors met on 14 August 2018 at BE HQ and all were present.


  • The Directors sent their congratulations to the Pony Team riders and staff who were so very successful at the European Championships at Bishop Burton. Both a team gold and individual medals for Saffron Osborn winning gold and becoming European Champion and Daisy Proctor winning a bronze medal. Full results can be found here
  • Directors reviewed the management accounts.  End of year forecast is for reserves to be £1.9m with £1.8m cash and investments balance.  Budget assumptions for 2019 were also discussed so the Senior Executive can start preparing the 2019 budget in preparation for the October Board meeting.
  • The FEI Eventing Committee election for its Athletes Representative is underway as Daisy Berkeley’s term is ending. William Fox-Pitt has nominated himself to stand for election to this important role.
  • A strategic approach on Equine Development and an equine talent pathway utilising the Equine Bridge (British Breeding ltd) will form part of the Board’s Strategy Day later in the year.   
  • The Board reviewed and approved the 2019 Entry Fee recommendation from the Sport Committee.  The recommendation was made based on a number of economic indices to fairly reflect the current economic environment that both organisers and members face.  Core to the discussion was the costs to organisers in running events which have risen significantly in the last few years and the need to balance this against affordability and accessibility of the sport for our members.  A press release will follow shortly.
  • The Board has requested a review of all Ground Care machinery including assessing potential new equipment and practices as well as best management of the machinery.
  • The BEF CEO gave an update on his ‘first 100 days’ in office. 
  • An ITTP update can be found here which will be updated at the end of August.
  • The Board approved for David Holmes to be the Chef de Mission at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon for the duration of the Games.


Next meeting will be October 16 at BE HQ.
