Corporate Membership is open to those running an equestrian organisation who follow the IEP standards for emotional and physical welfare across their range of practices.
The IEP logo will be available to use on your website, hard copy literature, and within your premises. In addition, tailored promotional material will be incorporated as a titled, separate page within the IEP website, along with ongoing promotion via our Facebook page. Various opportunities may be discussed on an individual basis, to meet your needs. The addition membership benefits above will also be included.

As a student member you will be working towards being qualified in your chosen field.
Student Members will need to have knowledge of learning theory, follow up to date research in equine behaviour and have knowledge in equine body language so as to detect when an equines welfare is compromised. As with all members, you will need to align with our ethos and ethics.
