The British Horse Foundation was established as a charity in 1991 under the Chairmanship of triple Olympic gold medal winner Richard Meade OBE who remained as Chair until his passing in 2013. Richard was succeeded by Vincent Jones, the founder of Preci Spark Event Horses. The current Chair is Prof Pat Harris.

We have three main charitable aims:

  1. To promote the industry in general and the breeding of horses and ponies in particular;
  2. To advance education, training and research in animal husbandry and allied subjects; and
  3. To assist in the prevention of unnecessary suffering or cruelty to horses and ponies.

Our Trustees are:
Pat Harris (Chair)
Chris Hunnable
Liz Jones (Hon. Treasurer)
Nicky Mackenzie
Edward Matson
Jane Nixon
Jan Rogers (Hon. Secretary)

The Breeders’ Awards Organiser is Rebecca Rawson of Wallace PR.
