Horse Bettors Forum Invites New Member Application

The Horse Bettors Forum (HBF) is inviting applications from the betting community to replace members leaving their posts, refreshing its membership.

The HBF are recruiting by merit and would like its membership to be broad and diverse, representing the inclusivity of betting.

The HBF was established in 2015, with assistance from the British Horseracing Authority – to understand the views of the people who bet on British horse racing which launched a diversity plan and to represent these views to racing and betting governing bodies.

Nine members make up the forum, chosen for their betting and racing knowledge and ability to represent the betting community in public. The forum meets four times a year but keep in touch and up to date frequently in between.

The HBF have already positively contributed to the betting and horseracing industry, introducing a ‘Betting Charter’ to protect all involved within betting.

The ‘Betting Charter’ includes points to improve the betting environment for horseracing punters, such as; the need for “advanced protection of punter funds”, “dealing appropriately with problem gambling”, and terms and conditions which are “helpful, concise and transparent”.

As betting sites multiply, choosing the right brand to make a bet with can be a difficult decision, with offers and deals varying throughout the season. Complying with the HBF, using a site to compare your options will help you get the most out of your betting experience and the best reward.

Sites, such as BettingTop10, aim to guide your online choice of bookmaker, being passionate about a range of sports including horse racing, and its betting community. The site lists the top ten online betting sites and their current deals, comparing big-name betting sites such as Coral, Bet365, and William Hill. Catered to both the novice and experienced punter, BettingTop10 also provides ‘how to’ guides for betting, tips on betting, and a calendar of horse-racing events.

Interested applicants for the HBF membership position are asked to contact the HBF via email, explaining in less than 500 words why they would like to be considered for a role in the forum.

Successful candidates will be notified and announced at the end of September.
