As a membership-based association, the members are at the heart of all we do. Our voice is your voice. It is important for us to have a real community feel with our membership, for the ABRS+ and our members to support and promote one another. We offer a range of information and support for our members from business advice, licensing support to government representation and professional development.
| SUPPORTING OUR MEMBERS
As a member dedicated association, the ABRS+ spends a great deal of time and resources on campaigning for riding schools and livery yards. No better example is made than during the Covid-19 pandemic where the ABRS+ has been undertaking a huge campaign to update, inform and support their member yards with regards to clarification of guidelines, government support and financial assistance.
| MEMBER NEWS
As a member dedicated association, the ABRS+ wants to promote our members and what they have to offer. Perhaps your yard, riding establishment or a staff member is celebrating an important milestone, you’ve won an award or achieved an accolade… or even just a ‘human interest’ story about the background of your yard or if you’re doing something out of the ordinary.
