The BE Support Trust is a new charity set up to provide invaluable support for injured British Eventing members and to improve the safety and wellbeing of the people at the heart of the eventing community.
The trust aims to help riders through difficult times, whether that be recovering from an eventing accident or coping with mental health challenges. It also seeks to promote, research, develop and implement initiatives which will help maintain the overall safety and welfare of our riders.

“I feel very honoured to become a BE Support Trust Ambassador … I think this is a huge step in the right direction for event riders to have a support system for when we get injured. Sadly, injury is part of our sport, therefore it is vital we have a support system to help us get back on board as quickly as possible!
I had a horrific fall in 2013 and was very lucky to spend time at Oaksey House rehab centre – which is funded by the Injured Jockeys Fund (Racings equivalent to BE Support Trust) – Without their expertise and advice, I would have been out for a lot longer than I was.
I hope everyone gets behind the BE Support Trust.
