Next year, Britain’s human and equine athletes head to Japan to compete on the biggest stage of all – the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Preparing, equipping and sending our teams and support staff half-way around the world is a costly undertaking. As long-standing supporters of British riders, Badminton Horse Trials is therefore honoured to get behind our equestrian teams and we’re proud to announce the British Equestrian Federation Fund (BEFF) as our nominated fundraising partner for 2020.
BEFF supplements the funding the World Class Programme receives from The National Lottery through UK Sport to ensure we’re able to meet the considerable costs of preparing and sending teams, including the all-important reserve combinations, to Tokyo.
Since 2000, Great Britain has won a total of 58 Olympic and Paralympic medals in the equestrian disciplines of dressage, showjumping, eventing and para-dressage. With our human and equine athletes currently on outstanding form, Tokyo 2020 will be a chance to add more to this tally – the British Equestrian Federation is ready for the challenge. Join us next year and get behind your team to help them on their journey toward medal glory.
