Funding from UK Sport and Sport England supports the BEF's work from developing the Olympic and Paralympic, World and European Championship medal winners, to encouraging growth in participation of people getting involved in the various disciplines of the sport. It exists to provide leadership, vision and purpose, in steering the direction of equestrianism.

Equestrian Team GBR has achieved multi medal winning success at recent Olympic and Paralympic Games across Showjumping, Eventing, Dressage and Para-Equestrian Dressage. It is a major contributor to the success of UK Sport, with many world-class athletes successfully coming through the highly regarded Equestrian World Class Programme.
