The British Horse Society is founded in 1947.

The other Founder Members of the BEF are British Eventing, British Showjumping and British Dressage.

At the signing ceremony, Lynn Petersen, the Chief Executive of the BHS, said, “The partnership with Equuleus has been based on our close relationship through years. Equestrian has had fast growth in China over the past years. Today, I am delighted to be standing here with all the enthusiasts of the sports. Horse Welfare is very important, our goal is to educate professional trainers and stable managers to care for their horses with the respect horses so richly deserve. Education is at the heart of The British Horse Society.

“It is a great honor for Equuleus to become BHS’ one and only strategic cooperative riding centre in China. During the past 14 years, Equuleus has benefited from following the guidance and structure of training, stable management, club management and the safety of the BHS.” Wang Qiang added. “The trainers and managers from 33 provinces, more than 60 riding clubs have came to Equuleus for training and examination, and got qualified. Without a growing cohort of correct, safe and fun trainers, the sport will struggle to develop both at grassroots and at the top levels. The BHS system not only aim to the amateur adolescent and adult, the training and examination system has been used worldwide by the trains, riders and stable managers. In addition BHS qualified professionals are highly sought after internationally as well as at home.”

Alex, the Goodwill Ambassador of the BHS, who also has placed 8th at eventing in the Rio Olympic in 2016 said, “Equestrianism is a fast growing industry in China and there are many wonderful equestrian clubs providing a top level service. However, there are still many equestrian facilities with less well qualifications, standards and operation systems available. The BHS represents credibility, tradition and is the international standard of equestrian education and qualification. I think the BHS's greatest value to the Chinese equestrian market is confidence. Confidence for families and riders, new to the world of horses, that the equestrian facilities they go to provides the BHS's international standards in rider safety and horse welfare. This is an important milestone in the growth of my sport and world in China and I am very proud and excited to be involved!”
