Duty Days

A reminder to all members:

It is mandatory for each member to do just 1 duty day per year. If you are unable to do this or cannot swap with another member then you will be required to pay £25 which will absolve you from your duty for the year. The money will be used towards the running costs of the competition.

The Agriculture Bill – Access Provisions

The forthcoming Agriculture Bill will set the agenda for the future of our countryside. The British Horse Society believes that opportunities to improve and enhance access to safe off road riding should be integral to the Agriculture Bill.

Please contact your local MP to support The British Horse Society’s call for farmers and landowners to be paid to widen the network available to horse riders, and to help maintain the network as part of any future subsidy scheme under the Agriculture Bill.

You can find and contact your local MP (using this draft letter) from the websites below:
