The Boots & Bridles Equestrian club (BBEC) is a multi-discipline horse riding (equestrian) club, established on 1 September 2018 in the Ehlanzeni district in Nelspruit.
We are a SAEF registered club and currently affiliated with:
Reining & Western Performance Horse South Africa (RWPHSA)
South Africa Show Jumping (SASJ) and
Showing Association of South Africa (SASA).
South African Working Equitation Association (ZAWE)
We are planning on hosting NBHA and Cowboy Dressage events in 2020.
We are more than willing to affiliate with other disciplines if we have members or potential members that require it, such as DSA
Our slogan “We may ride in different saddles, but we all get on from the same side” is our acceptance and a reminder that we support all disciplines, and do not judge each other regardless of the tack we use. We are supporters of bitless riding.
We aim to host training shows/clinics, fun days and qualifiers/graded shows in the above disciplines to promote the sport to all ages of equestrians and potential equestrians.
To be acknowledged and accepted as respected competitors internationally.
Our dream is to be the leading association in the development and promotion of horses and riders locally and internationally through a credible set of standards embraced by our stakeholders.
We believe in
~ acknowledging credible achievements at provincial, national and international level;
~ the all-inclusive development and promotion of horses and riders locally and internationally;
~ abiding to an international credible set of rules;
