Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials names The British Horse Society (BHS) as its lead charity partner at this year’s event, taking place on 14-17 September.

Equine charity, The British Horse Society exists to change lives through the power of horses. Whatever path an individual takes with horses and however they thrive together, the BHS is here to protect and support the interests of all equestrians every step of the way.

Through education, equine welfare, protecting and increasing off-road access for equestrians, safety for horses and riders, and increasing community participation in equestrianism, the charity works hard to protect that unique horse human bond to ensure it can be enjoyed for future generations.

The BHS’s Approved Centres Scheme, inclusive educational programmes and national club system, British Riding Clubs, continue to help keep Britain’s equestrianism thriving, enabling people from all communities to experience the joy of horses and riding.

This partnership will be an exciting step towards promoting even greater equestrian access at a grass-roots level, and further opportunities to discover how horses can help us to be our best selves.

James Hick, Chief Executive of The British Horse Society said: “We are delighted to be the official charity partner for this year’s Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials. We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to showcase the wonderful work our volunteers and supporters do to Keep Britain Riding, and to commemorate the important role horses have in all our lives.”

“We are excited to be working in partnership with The British Horse Society which shares the same values and passion we have for the equestrian world. We look forward to developing our relationship and offering their members and those attending the horse trials a memorable experience,” said Event Organiser, Katrina Midgley.

The horse trials and BHS are working on some exciting initiatives and exclusive offers for their members, which will be announced across their website and social pages over the forthcoming weeks:
