Formerly known as the British Horse Trials Association (BHTA), the organisation changed its name to British Eventing in 2001 and is now run by the Chief Executive Jude Matthews, alongside the Board and the head office team at Abbey Park near Kenilworth in Warwickshire. BE sits alongside 18 member bodies, under British Equestrian, which is the National Governing Body for all equestrian sport in Great Britain. 


The non-executive Board of Directors are responsible for the overall good governance of the sport and the strategic direction of the organisation.

Mission and values


British Eventing has a number of committees covering many areas of the business who review and propose rules, regulations and initiatives to the Board for their consideration.

Rider Working Groups

BE has introduced two rider working groups following member feedback that aim to strengthen the connection of the membership to the strategic direction of the sport. These groups will identify and assess areas of potential development and improvement of the sport for our members.
