BEDE Welcomes Riders Minds as Charity Partner for 2023/2024
We are delighted to welcome Riders Minds as our 2023 & 2024 Charity partner.
Riders Minds is a mental health and well-being charity, created especially for equestrians. On the Riders Minds website you will find a multitude of information, self-help tools, and the Mental Health Checker, along with the Head First Checker, which people can use following a fall.
Despite its name, Riders Minds is for all equestrians, so whether you’re a rider, a groom, a parent, a farrier or event organiser – the resources are there, should you need them.
Mental health isn’t 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, www.ridersminds.org.
All 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 www.ridersminds.org.
BEDE Events will be donating a proportion of each entry fee to our events to Riders Minds throughout the 2023 and 2024 season. Head to their website to donate and help them continue their amazing work.
