The British Grooms Association Giveaway

The British Grooms Association Giveaway

To celebrate its 5th birthday on 3rd May, the British Grooms Association (BGA) is delighted to announce that it is giving away 200 free standard memberships, worth £19.50, to the first 200 grooms to apply.

As a thank you to existing members the BGA is giving £5 off membership when they re-join next year and has also compiled a selection of excellent discounts from leading equestrian suppliers, details of which will be in the next membership magazine. And if that’s not enough all existing members will be automatically entered into a competition in which they can win a complete SPILLERS® spring wardrobe, which consists of a SPILLERS polo shirt, hooded jumper and polypad.

To acknowledge its excellent working relationship with employers the BGA is also giving 10% off the Equine Employers Handbook until the end of June.

The BGA was founded five years ago by former International groom, Lucy Katan, who wanted to see increased support for grooms and for them to receive the recognition that they deserve within the industry.

Executive Director Lucy Katan says, “The BGA has helped so many grooms over the past five years. We have inspired some to change careers within the equine industry, others have needed help in their own employment situation with issues ranging from bullying to unfair dismissal and unpaid wages, and some just have needed someone to talk through their workplace problems.  We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far and without the BGA there would be no where for grooms to turn to for help.”

Since the formation on the BGA in 2007 the association has introduced a free legal helpline, published a guide to employment law focused on the equestrian industry, has introduced the Equine Skills CV, has become a member body of the BEF and provides a united voice for grooms across the industry.

To get your hands on a free membership, simply call our Membership Officer on 07590 258907, although you had better be quick as this is on a first come first serve basis. Please note this is for new members only and is available from 3rd May.
