Hoof Capital Funding

Hoof Capital Funding was set up by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport through the Government agency, Sport England.

It is split into two schemes, which are both designed to support the development of equestrian facilities that will contribute to helping increase participation of riding, driving and vaulting in England.


  • Hoof Capital Funding Grant Scheme: Allows not-for-profit groups or clubs, charities and limited companies to apply for funding.
  • Hoof Leased Facilities Scheme: Enables those who might have previously been excluded from applying for Capital Funding (primarily Sole Trader and Partnership operations) to lease facility components and equipment.


Applications for Hoof Capital Funding for 2016 have now closed.

For any organisations that have already applied for Hoof Capital Funding, the deadline for full applications to be submitted by is 3 June 2016. A decision on which centres will receive investment will be made on 13 June 2016.
