The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) is delighted to announce it has received confirmation from UK Sport that they consider the Federation to be fully compliant with the Code for Sports Governance.

Furthermore, they are content with the actions taken since the publication of the independent review in March 2018 to ensure the Federation meets the high standards expected of funded bodies. This follows the earlier confirmation from Sport England along similar lines and on-going funding from both organisations is now secured for the remainder of the current cycle.

Nick Fellows, Chief Executive of the BEF, commented: “I am very pleased to receive the backing of our significant funding partners for the progress we have made, working closely with our Member Bodies, over the past nine months. Areas that were highlighted have been addressed and we have a really constructive working relationship with our 19 Member Bodies.

“In particular, I would also like to thank British Dressage, British Eventing, British Showjumping and the British Horse Society who have all worked proactively alongside the BEF to help us achieve this within such a relatively short period of time. We can now focus on the year ahead as we deliver our objectives in the build-up to Tokyo 2020. The partnership approach will be a strong feature of our strategy and we shall strive to set and achieve the highest standards in all that we do.”
