Dear SW Members, 

Welcome to the South West Regional Webpage. We hope you find everything you need to know about all things SW on this page. If you need any further help please do not hesitate to contact your RDO or Regional Committee.  

Our Region is split in to eight counties. Avon, Channel Islands, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire. Each County has at least one BD Youth and one Senior County Coordinator. Our CCO’s organise regular training and test riding throughout the year along with our regional camps, seminars and unmounted events.

There is something for everyone to enjoy whether you are an Intro or Grand Prix rider, a Youth or Senior rider, a Judge, Coach, Para Rider or supporter.

We welcome new ideas and would love to hear from you so please get in touch.

Mandy - SW Regional Development Officer
