Welcome to the 2021-2022 show season! It’s good to be back at the barn and back in the saddle.
Now is the time to join or renew your membership in Equestrian Bahamas.
EB membership opens vistas of opportunity, exposure and education for members at every level. Our status as a National Federation of the Fédération Équestre Internationale (FEI) and a Member Region of the US-based Interscholastic Equestrian Association affords our coaches and riders access to a wide range of educational opportunities, scholarships and technical development initiatives. Our engagement in international and local partnerships helps to make equestrian sport accessible to a broad spectrum of Bahamian youth.
We invite you to be a part of the many exciting events we have planned for this season. In particular we look forward to our first year of active partnership with the IEA, competing as Region 13 in Zone 4. Our BIEL/IEA show calendar has been enhanced and expanded and now offers interscholastic competition opportunities for riders from Grade 4 and up.
Please explore our updated website and talk to your trainer to learn more about the all the opportunities available. Remember to read our updated Covid-19 Competition Safety Guidelines and the EB Code of Ethics, both available under the Resources tab of our website. Updated Rule Books and Class Specifications and a full competition calendar are available under Horse Shows.
Membership payments may be made through your trainer (cheques should be made payable to Equestrian Bahamas). If paying online, please note the name of the EB member on whose behalf the payment is being made. Please direct any questions regarding membership payments to Mrs. Sabrina Wong at [email protected]
Thank you for your support. We look forward to a fantastic new year in equestrian sport!
