Board

The Board is responsible for managing the business of British Equestrian. In doing so it must observe the highest standards of impartiality, integrity and objectivity; be accountable and give value to members and stakeholders; and engage in partnership with the British Equestrian’s senior management team.

The Board comprises a mix of independent, elected and nominated directors, with an independent chair. The Chair is Malcolm Wharton.

Board members are appointed based on personal competencies. Four members, including the chair, come through an open recruitment process; four members are nominated by the founder members (British Dressage, British Eventing, the British Horse Society and British Showjumping); and four members are elected by the Council. 

Board meetings are attended by the Chief Executive and by members of the executive team as required.
