Two coronavirus impact surveys
14 April 2020

In their last update (Tuesday 14 April) the BEF mentioned two surveys which are currently running to help measure the impact on the industry of the coronavirus pandemic. We would like to encourage as many as possible to take part, as the data will be very helpful.

Two providers have launched online surveys to give a more accurate picture of how the equestrian industry has been impacted by the pandemic.

XV Insight is independently assessing the effects on horse ownership in general, using a questionnaire that should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete. They’ll share the findings with the industry and public.

The XV questionnaire can be found HERE (

The British Grooms Association (BGA) and Equestrian Employers Association (EEA) have launched a survey to look at employment in particular, and input is welcome from any workers, equine businesses and yard owners.

The BGA/EEA survey can be found HERE (

Please take a few moments to help and complete these surveys.
