Association Bodies

British Equestrian Vaulting and Team GBR are extremely grateful for the support we enjoy from our governing body BEF, our affiliation to the FEI,  our sponsors and suppliers.

The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) is the National Governing Body for horse sports in the UK, affiliated to the Federation Equestre Internationale  (FEI), the international governing body of equestrian sports. It exists to provide leadership, vision and purpose in steering the direction of equestrianism. Its patron is HRH The Duchess of Cornwall

The International Federation for Equestrian Sports (French: Fédération Équestre Internationale, FEI) is the international governing body of equestrian  sports. The FEI has organized the FEI World Equestrian Games every four years since 1990. The idea of the World Equestrian Games (WEG) came into being in the mid-1980s and was strongly supported by HRH Prince Philip, who was then FEI President.

Equestrian pursuits test skill, bravery, power and partnerships. Land Rover has supported world class competitions and competitors for decades; their support of Team GBR is part of their commitment to backing homegrown competitors competing at the highest level.

At RDA,  horses and ponies provide therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities all over the UK. The RDA network of 500 volunteer groups organise activities such as riding, carriage driving, vaulting, showjumping and Hippotherapy to up to 28,000 people each year.

The BGA is the national representative body for all grooms working in the UK or British grooms abroad. BGA exist to support members throughout their career as a groom, providing support, advice and education to all working in the industry and to speak up on the issues that really matter.

As official suppliers to the British equestrian team, the support from NAF enables riders/ vaulters from all British team disciplines to use NAF products under the direction of their Team Vets, to support the health and fitness of their team horses when competing for their country.
