Rider Sponsorship Guidelines

It is important that all competitors competing at international level are aware of the rules concerning personal sponsorship. 

The BEF rules state that: "Sponsorship agreements may provide Riders with financial assistance for the preparation and participation in Events. Such agreements must not contravene these rules, or those rules or bye-laws of the FEI, BOA, BPA, UK Sport or any Testing Authority or the provisions of any Team GB or Team GBR agreement." 

The BEF has produced an advisory booklet, 'Individual Rider Sponsorship - Understanding the Regulations and Avoiding the Pitfalls'.  The booklet provides guidance on these provisions. 

NB:  Advertising on Athletes and Horses Promotion FEI regulations are effective 1 January 2015. To view the extract from the FEI General Regulations 23rd edition, 1st January 2009 - click here (This replaces the extract currently published in the above booklet; please find in Article 135)
