British Eventing is the National Governing Body for the sport of eventing in Great Britain. We regulate and schedule over 170 events throughout Britain across the season for our 15,000 members. 

Eventing is the ultimate equestrian challenge, combining dressage, show jumping and cross country in one exciting activity. It is one of the few sports where men and women compete against each other and Great Britain are currently the world champions in eventing.The eventing season runs from March to October, with competitions from introductory level through to the highest international level. Winter competitions are held during the off season, providing a good introduction to the sport or the perfect opportunity for riders to improve their skills and prepare for the season ahead. 

What is eventing?


Eventing in Britain is the perfect spectator sport with more than 170 fixtures scheduled across the season attended by over one million spectators at a range of stunning locations. Attending as a fan is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family as well as spotting some of the stars of our sport. The shopping is fantastic and events have a range of tradestands and eateries for you to enjoy.



If you want to align your brand with an affluent and passionate market, then exhibiting at a British Eventing event is the perfect opportunity to showcase what you have to offer. The shopping and food is often one of the biggest attractions of our events and some events even have tickets available just for the shopping. Exhibiting with British Eventing is a unique outdoor experience at some of the country's most stunning locations.
