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’.
