Bespoke tools for employers & managers

The Equestrian Employers Association is the professional organisation for all employers and yard managers in the equestrian industry. With a wide range of bespoke tools, templates and employment advice tailored for the equestrian industry, we can help to support you in running your business legally and profitably. 

If you are employing someone and giving them the term 'Working Pupil' it is important that you treat them as an employee. It is possible to offer training on an employees own horse, however there are procedures to follow to ensure you are protecting your business from an HMRC investigation. All training must be invoiced, as must livery and the National Minimum Wage must be paid for every hour that is worked. Discover more
