BEDE Events Charity 2023 is Riders Minds

We are delighted to welcome Riders Minds as our 2023 Charity. 

Riders Minds is a mental health and well-being charity, especially for equestrians. On the Riders Minds website you will find a multitude of information, self-help tools, the Mental Health Checker and the Head First Checker, which people can use following a fall.

Despite its name, Riders Minds is for all equestrians, so whether you are a rider, a groom, a parent, a farrier or event organiser – the resources are there for you, should you need them.

Mental health is something that everyone feels comfortable talking about, so you can be assured that all of the services are completely confidential. 

Anyone wanting support can either phone one of the trained callers on the helpline, or if you would rather not speak and prefer to message, you can ether text, or use the web chat service on the website,

All of the Riders Minds services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are free of charge.

1 in 4 people suffer with their mental health each year – now you truly are not alone.

You can find Riders Minds on social media, or by visiting the website at 

BEDE Events will be donating a proportion of each entry fee to our events to Riders Minds throughout 2023. Head to their website to donate and help them continue their amazing work.
