Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update – 24thMarch 2020

Sport Horse Breeding of Great Britain is following Government advice in the running of the Society’s business in relation to Coronavirus (COVID – 19).

As a result of the Government announcement last night the Edenbridge office of Sport Horse Breeding is closed. I personally will come into the office each day for at least a few hours to deal with matters that cannot be dealt with by staff working at home and to keep the business of the Society running as best we can.

The office telephone lines will be open Monday to Friday inclusive from 9am to 12 noon - 01732866277. In addition any queries and other matters can be emailed and will be responded to. To make matters slightly easier and to speed up response times to queries please email specific queries to the email addresses below:

All Stud Book registrations, foal registrations, change of ownership queries, breeding and grading queries – email

All Identity Registration queries, annual show hunter registrations, day tickets, overstamps & memberships – email

All queries in related to affiliated shows, judging and general show related matters – email

All other general queries – email

Please bear with us during this time and rest assured we will endeavour to meet the needs and requirements of our members and customers in any way possible. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Any official updates we receive in relation to affiliated shows or other events related to our business will be shared via our website and Facebook page as will information in relation to all events run by the Society.
