Riders Laughing Training

Due to continued growth, in 2016 British Eventing (BE) Training and Education (T&E) has undergone new developments to the regional structure, including the introduction of Regional Committees and the recruitment of eight regionally based employees.

More information on your region can be found below:

The updated structure will see the Regional Committees implementing programme policy at a regional level, communicating with all stakeholders on training matters. The policy will principally relate to training riders, under 18s, Coaches, Officials and Volunteers as guided by the aims and objectives of the BE Strategy.

Regional Committees will be made up of:

  • Regional Chairman (Regional Coordinator)
  • Regional Development Officer
  • Rider Training Organiser (Formerly Regional Training Organiser)
  • U18 Regional Coordinator
  • U18 Coach
  • Coach Educator


The Regional Chairman, who will be the current Regional Coordinator, will bring a broad insight and knowledge of their region and will provide an overview at regional level of all of BE’s activities. They are responsible for ensuring the Committee functions effectively, maximising the potential of each area. Find out more about the role of the Regional Coordinator HERE.

Regional Development Officers (RDOs) will work closely not only with the Regional Committee members, but also the overarching T&E Committee and T&E Team at BE Headquarters, coordinating and administrating training courses in the region. 

Rider Training Organisers (RTOs) will work together with the RDOs to implement the policy issued by the T&E Committee, with the aim of the role being to assess the demand and ensure the requirements of riders at all levels are being accounted for in the planning of regional training. More information on the RTOs can be found HERE.

U18 Regional Coordinators and U18 Coaches will provide technical input to the RDO and Committee on U18 matters, and will also work closely with the RDO to implement training. Information on the U18 Regional Coordinators can be found HERE.

The Regional Coach Educator provides input to both the Committee and RDO on coaching issues to ensure there is adequate training and development for the Coaches within each region. Coach Educators are also responsible for providing support to UKCC Candidates in their region. More information on the Coach Educators can be found HERE.

With the aim to provide more training to BE Members, provide a stepping stone into the sport for non-members and to develop the training offering for all stakeholders, the new regional structure has also aligned the T&E and Under 18 regional boundaries more closely with the other BE regional boundaries to work towards a more coordinated and collaborative organisation. A Map of the new regional Boundaries can be found HERE (available soon).
