Founded in 1978 for private supporters committed to aiding and funding training and development of talented riders for Britain's three-day event teams. Eventing (Horse Trials) is the complete test of the all-round horse and rider.
It is a tough and demanding sport – increasingly popular with competitors and spectators alike – in which British competitors are among the best in the world. The British team are the current European and World Champions.
The sport is also costly and time-consuming and there are many talented riders, with good horses, who simply do not have the resources to carry on right to the top. These are the riders whom the HTSG targets for assistance.
From membership income in 2018 & 2019 the HTSG was able to fund two scholarships for riders who have demonstrated talent and potential to be selected for Team GB. In 2020 & 2021 our main fund raising aim was for Team GBR and the campaign for success at the Tokyo Olympics, which resulted in two donations of £20,000 per year. Read more in our blog.
