BBSH - for the record
BBSH meeting note Oct 2011 here
In 2010 PSHP became The British Bred Sport Horse (BBSH) following an industry meeting where it was decided that the brand needed to be clearer. Our new logo was adopted then.Liaison:
PSHP, in 2009, hosted a very successful meeting with delegates from Haras Nationaux/SIRE and British breed societies/studbooks to achieve a better understanding of each others' needs and develop an agreed process for managing the registrations of British horses residing or born in France.
