About the BEF Equine Portfolio and British Breeding

British Breeding is an unstaffed Company Limited by Guarantee which operates a number of initiatives in support of British breeders and British studbooks, including the Futurity. The operational team are Jan Rogers and Cat Wood, provided by the BEF Equine Development Portfolio, and donated to British Breeding by BEF.

What do we mean when we say 'British Bred?'

The BEF's definition of the term "British bred" applies to a horse that was either foaled in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) or the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands or foaled abroad to a dam normally living in the United Kingdom, Isle of man or Channel Islands that had been temporarily exported for the purpose of mating only. Neither the stud book of origin of the dam nor the stud book of origin or the place of domicile of the sire are considered as relevant factors in determining whether a foal is British bred.
