Day Passes

You can compete a horse at BE90, BE100, Novice and Intermediate Novice levels (including Open and Under 18 classes) on a Day Pass. In order to compete on a Day Pass you need to purchase one Pass for the horse and one Pass for the rider to cover you both for one day of competition. Horses can have an unlimited number of Passes in a season, but riders can only have four Passes in a season.  

Registering your horse

In order to buy membership for a horse you will first need to register the horse with British Eventing*. Registration is free but there are some key pieces of information that you should be aware of, and certain pieces of documentation that you will need to provide. Please ensure you read how to REGISTER YOUR HORSE before trying to purchase a Horse Membership.

*If your horse has ever been registered with British Eventing before (with you or a previous owner) you do not need to complete a horse registration. If they have previously been registered with you as the owner you will need to log into your BE account, select My Horses, and here you will find all the information in order to purchase Season Tickets/Day Passes etc. If they have been registered with a different owner, you will need to complete a change of ownership.

How much does a Day Pass cost?

Horse Grade or Competition Level Day Pass
From BE80(T) to IN level competition level £16


The cost of each Day Pass is £16 and Day Pass Members need to purchase one for the horse and one for the rider. If you buy a horse Pass and a rider Pass together, you will pay £25 instead of £32, but only if you purchase them online and in the same transaction.

Rider Membership

In order to purchase a Day Pass for your horse you must first have a Day PassSupporter or Full Membership. Owner, Joint, Syndicate and Corporate Members can also buy Day Passes, but they cannot ride in the competition; the rider must have either Day Pass, Supporter or Full Membership.

Full Members will only need to purchase a Day Pass for the horse in order to compete.

What happens if my event is abandoned? 

If your event is abandoned you can use your Day Pass to make an entry to another event. In order to make your Day Pass available again for further entries, please contact the Membership Team at

Refunds for passes are only for medical, veterinary, balloting or abandonment reasons and any refund must be applied for before 31 December of the year in which the pass was purchased. Send applications to and ensure that the horse's BE registered name is on the vet's letter and application - not the stable name. Please note that the maximum refund amount available is up to 95 per cent.

If you are already a BE member you will just need to sign in to your BE account and select the Buy Passes option.
