British Breeders Network Gathers Momentum

After the unmitigated success of its inaugural meeting at Moulton College in October 2014, which saw the coming together of over fifty horse breeders and studbook representatives from across the entire country, the British Breeders’ Network is continuing on its path to transforming the British Breeding landscape through fostering a spirit of cooperation and unity across the industry, whilst celebrating the diversity of British equine breeds.

Great Britain is the spiritual home of modern sports horse and pony breeding. We are very proud of the enormous influence horses bred on the British Isles, from the English Thoroughbreds to our many wonderful native pony breeds, had on competition breeding all over the world and look forward to continuing this illustrious tradition.

British Breeders have many reasons to celebrate in recent years, as the excellence of their horses is shining through with exciting young prospects making their debut in international competition arenas. Modern horse breeding is a form of art, balancing ever-increasing expectations, not only in terms of performance, but also in terms of beauty and character. The expertise, love and dedication of British breeders is acknowledged and appreciated by riders all over the world who recognise that breeding lies at the very heart of their successes.

In the spirit of the network’s philosophy of inclusivity and productivity, all across the country, regional groups have sprung up, exploring new ways of working together and paving the way for a series of events in the New Year that will showcase the achievements of British breeding and facilitate new partnerships across the equestrian spectrum.

The network is seeing the coming together of horse breeders and those with an interest in breeding horses from all parts of the country and from all walks of life.

We are united in our pursuit of excellence in horse breeding. Our new initiative enjoys unprecedented support from all areas of the industry and is gathering pace at an astounding rate. We are a group created by breeders for breeders. Every breeder, no matter if already established or new to breeding horses, no matter how large or small, is equally welcome and equally important to our success.
