The British Equestrian Federation has today launched its 2013-2014 Capital Funding round, providing an opportunity for centres and clubs to apply for £1 for £1 match funding to upgrade riding establishments, increase capacity and accessibility or improve centre facilities – ie. changing rooms, toilets, social areas.

Bids submitted should be for no less than £1,000 and no more than £25,000, whilst the preferred bid level is between £10,000 and £15,000. Grants will be awarded to those projects that can clearly deliver increased participation for equestrianism and have a positive and sustainable impact in their local community.
