The Future of Breeding!

British Breeders’ Network aims to support and promote the breeding of all types of British-bred horses and ponies – from native breeds to Thoroughbreds – from riding horses to future Olympic champions – and to develop a fully inclusive network owned by and for the benefit of all British equine breeders, by sharing best practice and creating relationships that support improved trade, wide participation and the breeding of horses ‘fit for purpose’.

BBN Appoints Keith Taylor as its new Chairman

KEITH TAYLOR IS APPOINTED CHAIRMAN OF THE BRITISH BREEDERS’ NETWORKIn 2016 British Breeders’ Network saw its busiest year yet, with a range of new initiatives designed to help breeders promote their stock, achieve better sales and enhance the profile of British breeding, culminating in the appointment of a new Chairman; KEITH TAYLOR. From 2008 to Q3 2016 Keith Taylor was Chairman of the British Equestrian Federation.

Keith is already known to many of our members, as the founder of Seagry stud and also thanks to the extremely interesting talk he gave at the Stallion Event at Bury Farm in January 2016, when he spoke about his marketing experience in charge of Diageo’s highly regarded brands, and how this marketing expertise can be applied to the breeding industry.
