Business Networks


Hoof is the British Equestrian Federation’s support network for equestrian businesses and facilities. The network represents the BEF’s plans to achieve increased participation through attracting new people into the sport, as well as maintaining opportunities and raising standards for those already enjoying riding.

Hoof aims to:

  • Offer advice, guidance and support on the opportunities available for equestrian businesses to grow and raise standards.
  • Consult with local equestrian businesses to understand the challenges that are faced within the industry and help find solutions.
  • Facilitate networking opportunities for equestrian business or facilities throughout the year, to be able to share best practice, gain support, and advice from key speakers.

The Hoof network is supported by County Sport Partnerships (CSP’s), which are based in each county across England. For more information please visit the CSP page, or follow this link.

Hoof has a number of national programmes available for equestrian businesses to get involved with. For more information please see below.
