Social Media Boycott 30/04/2021

Along with British Equestrian and British Eventing, Badminton Horse Trials will be uniting with the football community and other sports for a social media boycott from 15.00 on Friday 30 April to 23.59 on Monday 3 May in support of bringing an end to online abuse and hate.

Equestrianism will not tolerate discrimination or abuse in any form, and we call on social media providers to make their users fully accountable for their actions and eradicate online abuse from their platforms. We will continue to make our position clear to DCMS to keep the pressure on to ensure the UK Government’s Online Safety Bill gives Ofcom appropriate regulatory and supervisory powers.

Please note that websites will remain operational across British Equestrian’s member bodies and they may send digital communications to stakeholders during this time.
