British Equestrian Writers’ Association

BEWA LogoBEWA was founded in 1973, with the principal aim of gathering together specialist equestrian writers – photographers also joined later – so that we could collectively try to improve working conditions at horse shows and events in Britain. BEWA also aims to promote equestrian sport, to which end, among others, we hold an annual awards lunch towards the year’s end.

Originally there was just one award, for the outstanding rider of the year, but this has since been expanded and there are additional awards for riders aged 18 or under, and 25 or under, plus one for a person who has made an outstanding contribution to equestrian sport. There is also now an award for the leading horse. The awards are decided by votes from members of BEWA.

A handbook is published each year listing members of BEWA and useful contacts.
