frequently asked questions
Membership in the European Equestrian Business Association e.V. is open to all who have their headquarters in one of the member states of the European Union, the European Economic Area, Switzerland or the United Kingdom or who can prove that they are regularly active in this region. We also deliberately include those European countries that are not part of the EU, as there have always been many cross-border partnership connections and cooperations in our industry and we support their preservation and expansion.
Absolutely! Our industry is diverse, both in terms of industry segments and company structures. We want to represent this diversity and give it a common voice. What all players have in common is that they live equally from and for the horse. The sustainable further development of the entire sector is our common concern!
There are no associations in Germany and only a few in Europe that fully represent the horse industry in its entirety. Within Europe, the areas of breeding and sport in particular are represented and organised by various national and international sport and breeding associations. These include, for example, the European Equestrian Federation and its national representatives. Other associations and federations only represent individual market segments on a national level. We believe that the time has come for a strong European representation of interests for the entire industry!
