Did you know that many riders who compete their own horses don’t consider themselves as ‘owners’? Did you also know that the Event Horse Owners Association (EHOA) has specific membership for Rider Owners and if you ride at the Mitsubishi Motors Cup you are eligible for some additional prizes generously supported by Shearwater Insurance Services Ltd?
The highest placed EHOA member in both the BE90 and BE100 class will receive a silver salva, £200 cheque, a jacket and rosette. The top six in both sections also receive a jacket and a rosette and all members that complete will also receive a rosette. If you would like to join the EHOA please apply online or post before Friday 27th April 2018 so we can process the application in time to be eligible for the EHOA prizes at the Mitsubishi Motors Cup.
A link to the application form can be found HERE.
Who they are:
The Event Horse Owners Association is run by owners for owners. It was founded 20 years ago by owners of eventing horses who were the poor relations of the sport. Our aim is for owners to be recognised, with all stakeholders of eventing and the media, as part of the main constituents of the sport. Everyone in the sport knows that, without the financial commitment and enthusiasm of owners, the sport would not survive. The EHOA continues to be the ‘Voice of the Owners’.
What they do:
Make eventing even more fun for owners! On the social side we host hospitality marquees at many major events, including Mitsubishi Motors Badminton and many others nationwide. There is also an Owners Dinner at Badminton and Annual End of Season Awards Dinner.
You will receive:
- FREE £15 training voucher, for all members annually
- FREE annual £20 Shearwater Insurance voucher
- FREE ticket into prize draw for £1000 Travel Grant
- Invitation to all social functions
- Over £5k awards for owners and riders during the season
- Discount offered at a number of key equestrian businesses
And most importantly the EHOA represents Owners in all aspects of the sport.
Your support is vital to maintain the Owners “Voice”.
