If you would prefer to complete and post a change of ownership, membership or horse registration form, you can still do this by downloading the forms below, although using our new online system means you will be able to start accessing your membership benefits straight away.

Members' Handbook

For all of our competition rules and everything you need to know about being a member, take a look at our 2024 Members' Handbook:


The Members' Handbook is produced digitally for our members to support our commitment to cut down on paper use, transport miles, and to help with our green credentials. All of our judges, stewards and officials will receive a printed copy automatically.

We will print a very small number of additional rulebooks for those Full members who really do need to access a printed version. If you fall into this category please contact the team below. Your request will then be verified by our team, prior to a printed copy being posted out.
