Director Opportunities

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our Board of Directors who want to play an active role in influencing and supporting the direction of the equestrian industry in Scotland. As a Director, you will work with a dynamic Board, highly talented staff team and our wider member bodies to implement our strategy, drive horsescotland forward and help us make our vision a reality.

While experience would be beneficial for each of the roles, it is not essential as support and training can be provided. The roles are voluntary with a time commitment of 6 – 8 hours per month.

horsescotland endorses the principle of sports equality and will strive to ensure that everyone who wishes to be involved in equestrian activities has a genuine and equal opportunity to participate in a respectful environment.

Unless otherwise stated, we accept applications under two categories, Independent Directors, those with no affiliation to a member body, and Organisational Directors, those who have an affiliation with a member body which is not already represented on the board. Currently we have representation from the BHS, World Horse Welfare and the Scottish Racing Academy.
