Business Networks

How has Hoof benefitted other riding centres?

 

What does the Hoof network do?

The network represent an important part of the British Equestrian Federation'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.

The aim of the network is to:

  • Offer advice, guidance and support on the opportunities for equestrian businesses to grow and raise standards.  Follow the links on the right hand side of this page to sample some of the opportunities the network will provide
  • Consult with local equestrian businesses to understand challenges within the industry and find solutions
  • Provide a local equestrian forum from which to raise awareness, share good practice and gain support

The Hoof network is supported by County Sport Partnerships (CSPs), which are based in each county across England.

What are CSPs?

County Sport Partnerships (CSPs) are networks of local agencies committed to working together to increase participation in sport and physical activity across every part of England. They work with National Governing Bodies of Sport like the British Equestrian Federation and their clubs plus local partners in education, local authorities, facility operators, businesses, health organisations and many other sport and non-sporting organisations.

They can:

  • Provide funding advice and funding for programmes for 14-25 year olds
  • Support coaches and leaders including providing bursaries
  • Help you to make links with schools/colleges and other partners
  • Provide volunteers for events, competitions and clubs
  • Promote your facility or activities
  • Give support to develop clubs
  • Provide you with networking opportunities

To find more about your local CSP follow the links on the Hoof regional pages below.

So if you are an equestrian riding establishment or organisation which would like to learn more about what's going on in your region, what funding opportunities may be available to you or get you more connected to your local equestrian community why not join your regional Hoof network to find out more......
