Riders Laughing Training

In 2016, British Eventing Training & Education underwent developments to the regional structure, including changes to the Regional Committees and recruitment of eight part-time regionally based employees. The development and improvement since then has continued, and British Eventing are proud to offer top-class training and education opportunities across the country for:

  • Rider Training - for those just starting out in Eventing through to training at Intermediate, Advanced, 2* and 3 star level. The training provision covers all three Eventing disciplines, stamina and fitness and unmounted rider training. 
  • Coach Training - BE offers a range of Continual Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for BE Accredited Coaches and also for coaches who are accredited with other equestrian organisations. 
  • Volunteer Training - BE run annual Volunteer training across the regions, recruiting new volunteers and updating existing volunteers on the various roles available within the sport. 
  • Officials Training - training is provided as required for BE Officials. More information is available here.


There are eight Rider training regions and eight 12 to 21 regions. More information on each Rider training region can be found following the links to the left. A map of the regional boundaries is available to the right hand side of this page. The Rider Training and Under 18/12-21 Regional Boundaries differ slightly, information about the differences is available here

British Eventing offers training for all levels of rider from age 12 upwards, as well as catering for adults through our regional rider training offering, BE also runs an extensive Under 18 Programme which involves training for all levels of rider aged 12 to 21 and a Championship for U18 riders at BE100 and Novice/1* level. Find out more about the Under 18 Programme.

British Eventing Training is all inclusive for BE members and non-members – all you have to do is create an associate registration here to book! It’s completely free and takes five minutes to complete, and it allows access to ‘My BE’, where non-members can view their individual training calendar and members can also see their competition results – a great way to see how your training is affecting your form!

The updated structure sees 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. 

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. 

U18 Regional Coordinators, Assistants 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. 

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.
