National Equine Forum Almost Sold Out

Only a handful of tickets remain available for this year’s National Equine Forum given an unprecedented rush of early bookings.


The National Equine Forum will be held on Thursday 2nd March 2017 at The Institution of Mechanical Engineers, London, SW1H 9JJ.


It reflects the growing popularity and importance to the industry of this highly informative, non-partisan event.

This year Government officials, vets and equestrian industry leaders will share their knowledge and drive debate on some of today’s most pertinent equestrian matters. In the lively topical slots, just confirmed, the impact of Business Rates will be assessed, the impact of the growing threats of strangles and Equine Herpes Virus will be discussed and the replacement to the Horserace Betting Levy examined. Also hot off the press the Thoroughbred Health Network will be formally launched as a UK-wide initiative. In addition the programme includes Brexit’s potential impact on the horse industry, the central equine database, tack, bits and welfare, and Changing Lives through Horses.

The winner of the coveted Colin Spedding Award will be announced at the event from a shortlist of three nominees: fire and rescue expert Jim Green, side-saddle authority Maureen James and equine veterinary nurse Bonny Millar.

HRH The Princess Royal is the President of the National Equine Forum and it is sponsored by Bedmax, the Blue Cross, Bransby Horse, British Equestrian Federation, British Equestrian Trade Association, British Equine Veterinary Association, British Horse Society, British Horseracing Authority, Bulley Davey, Craig Payne Photography, Dodson and Horrell, Donkey Sanctuary, Hadlow College, the Horse Trust, the Horserace Betting Levy Board, Jeffress Scholarship Trust, NFU Mutual Insurance, Redwings Horse Sanctuary, Weatherbys and World Horse Welfare.

A very limited number of tickets remain available to equestrian trade delegates and equestrian professionals at £100 per person, including lunch and refreshments.
