BETA Summer of Safety

Support BETA’s Summer of Safety- June- September 2023 – raising awareness of rider and horse safety

This is the third year of the highly successful campaign that was designed to help inspire, educate and encourage people to embrace safety in all areas of their equestrian life, to help keep themselves and their horses safer. This year, the Summer of Safety already has a huge amount of support behind it.

The summer long campaign will include in person events, lives and online content from riders, manufacturers, equestrian bodies, BETA’s CMO Dr Diane Fisher, and more.

Topics being covered range from yard safety tips, bio-security, hi-viz standards, feed room safety, body protectors, riding hats and more……

In addition, the Summer of Safety will be heavily supported by BETA members in the form of competitions across the association’s social media platforms, educational information, and the ability to get involved in other ways too.

What’s your story?
Have you ever had a riding accident that could have been a lot worse if you hadn’t been wearing safety garments?

The British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) has launched a new way of collecting and recording information relating to accidents and injuries. The Rider Accident & Equipment Reporting Form, which is available to anyone experiencing an accident and injury around horses, is part of the association’s continued drive to help make equestrian sport safer.

The form is also easy fill in and allows BETA to collect additional information surrounding accidents to help inform design and protection development of safety equipment moving forward.
