It speaks on behalf of equine businesses and conveys their interests and opinions to Council and other Sub committees. It monitors relevant legislation.

Its Terms of Reference are:

  • To administer the VAT second hand scheme as agreed with HM Customs.
  • To negotiate with HM Customs and Government when necessary.
  • To advise Council and other committees on equine matters including legislation.
