Welcome to our new look!  We hope you enjoy the new, fresh and fully responsive layout. If you’re a regular user, most of the sections and content are still there but they may be under different headings so take some time to familiarise yourself. There’s plenty of new features to explore too.

Website Home Page

BD online which manages schedules, results and membership is now live and integrated with the website. You can view results and schedules as previously (no need to login) and now log on to your new look membership profile - use the Membership login link to enter. You'll need your membership number, date of birth and post code so we can verify your details and set your password - your previous credentials won't work. Plus, remember all members require a unique email address.

Here’s a quick content guide:

Header links
My membership – once live, you’ll log on to BD Online here to access your membership profile where you can renew, upgrade, register/renew horses and update your info.
BD info – a new section which has plenty of FAQs, BD hot topics, Ask the experts, an archive version of the BD members’ forum and past issues of the BD magazine and digital newsletters.
Shop – this area is currently being finalised and we’re expecting it to be up and running for you by Thursday. In the meantime, you can order over the phone on 02476 698830 – option 1.
Join – this is where you can become a part of BD – and a horse too – but this is currently off line until we get BD Online live soon.

Main navigation
Our sport – here you’ll find information about British Dressage, supporting our teams, lots of information (and fun facts and figures) about the fabulous world of dressage including a video guide to the movements and paces and our full contact information.
News – a full listing of all our news from the last three years which is fully searchable.
Events – all BD’s flagship events in one place for you to plan and purchase tickets.
Get involved – information for those looking to get started or take up a new role like judging, coaching or stewarding. Plus, all the detail for our BD Youth and Para programmes.
Competitions – the main hub of the site! It covers rules, fixtures, schedules, results, series and championships, major dates, regional competitions and how to take the step to competing internationally.
Membership – all the detail those looking to join need to take the step to joining as well as information on member benefits like the member insurances provided by partners Shearwater Insurances and the members’ legal helpline courtesy of partners Harrison Clark Rickerbys.
Regions – our eight regions have fantastic new pages where you can find and book all your training, meet your regional representatives and keep up to date with news and activities.

There’s sub navigation at the bottom of each page with important pages directly linked – extra helpful for mobile users.

Important links link terms and conditions, privacy policy, cookie policy and acceptable use policy are in the footer for easy access.

You don’t need to log in to the website for anything other than to see restricted content – members can see newsletters while roles like judges, organisers, stewards and coaches will have pages online soon.

The new site is currently without a classified section. We’ve done extensive research into developing a much improved platform but the time and cost restrictions meant we couldn’t be ready for launch. We know many of you value this facility and will continue to research our best, most cost effective solution. Any members who had a current classified running when we took the old site offline yesterday will be contacted in due course with the offer of a refund.

We’ll update you soon on BD online and then you have another new portal to explore.

The BD office will be open until 8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to help you navigate through your first login - just give us a call on 02476 698832 or 836.

In the meantime, if you have any feedback, question or issues, please send it our way:
