Riding School Membership renewals are now due; the subscription fee remains at £250.00 for another year. In view of the difficult trading year, Members can pay in three parts, £70 paid now from April 1st secures your full membership benefits with the balance paid in two instalments £90 each on June 1st and September 1st 2021. There is the usual reduced rate £165 p.a. for members with six or less horses. Our membership pack includes a £25 voucher towards your first purchase of rosettes and certificates.
Our membership packages includes full membership of the Equestrian Employers Association (EEA) with a retail value of your EEA membership being £49. The vast number of other benefits available to members can be found HERE.
We understand the challenges that your business faces and we are your united voice to Government and the British Equestrian Federation. Since our leading campaign early last year to Government and the initial visit by the MP for Horsham, members have benefited from full rate relief with two significant grants and the opportunity to furlough staff. I am sure you join me in thanking Jeremy Quinn for his support and to the BBC for featuring the ABRS on BBC World/BBC One and local radio to raise the profile of our cause, all of which has helped massively.
Recently Trustee George Baber has attended meetings with Scottish Government to obtain financial support for Scottish Schools caught in a hardship trap with restricted trading resulting in insufficient funds to meet costs yet ineligible for relief due to categorisation as open for trading.
An additional benefit to members is the opportunity to add Approved Livery Yard Membership to an existing Riding School membership for just £20 per year.
The membership renewal form can be found HERE.
