The Different Types of Membership Explained


BE boards dressageThere are several different types of British Eventing membership to suit your interest in the sport.  




You can ride and own a horse with British Eventing as either a Full Member, joining for a year, or by purchasing a Day Pass Membership  or Supporter Membership which entitles you to buy Day Passes to compete.

Step 1
Your first step to obtaining your membership is by creating a free Associate registration, whereby all your details are recorded on our database and you can then go on to choose to purchase a membership type.  

You can remain on the database as an Associate and get our monthly e-newsletters plus event information sent out to members.  

*Important Update* If you are under 18 or the parent or guardian of an under 18 member taking out a new membership, please read important details on parental consent now required for new under 18 members

Step 2 
Decide on the appropriate membership type for you from the list further down this page or on the left hand side menu.

Step 3 
If you are taking out a membership so you can ride and compete in BE competitions yourself, once you have chosen the appropriate membership you can then decide how to register your horse by purchasing either day passes or a season ticket.  

See the Horse Info page for full details and season ticket prices. 

For Riders

Full Individual Membership

This is the membership you need in order to compete as a rider throughout the season.  Membership is for a full, rolling year to the first of the month in which you join. Please see the table below for the benefits associated with this membership. A full member can also own horses.
