Frequently asked questions

If I am already a full member, do I need a Supporter Company membership to be able to display my own company logo?
Yes a Supporter Company membership will need to be purchased even if you are a full member as it is the Supporter Company membership that carries the ability to display logos. This costs as little as £25 per year when paying online and by direct debit.

What is the difference between Supporter Company and Corporate Membership?
A Supporter Company membership is for companies who do not own a horse, but simply wish to sponsor a rider and have their logo appear on the horse or rider’s equipment.

A Corporate membership is for a company who owns a horse i.e is the registered owner of the horse on our database. This membership also entitles company logos to be displayed during competition in accordance with the requirements set out above. A copy of the logo must also be sent to for approval.
