The Beaufort Cottage Educational Trust is a small charity that aims to support educational projects and events for all those involved in the care of horses and disseminate knowledge of the best veterinary and management practices and thereby enhance horse welfare.

BCET achieves this primarily through supporting educational events for vets, farriers and individuals working in the equine industry. We also provide veterinary education awards and veterinary summer scholarships to allow vet students and other young people to gain exposure to research relevant to the horse. We also work with other charities with similar interests to support initiatives on equine veterinary science and welfare.
