Under the Dunshea Agreement of 2021 TROTBritain becomes the Governing Body of trotting in Great Britain. It is an equal party, with the British Harness Racing Club, in Harness Racing GB – the joint council of the two independent organisations that makes decisions about matters of common interest to pacing (Governing Body: BHRC) and trotting (Governing Body: TROTBritain).

As Governing Body of trotting in Great Britain, unaffiliated to a body which organises pacing races, TROTBritain becomes eligible to be a full member of the European Trotting Union (UET), having been an invited member since 1994.

Since 2014 TROTBritain has been working closely in association with the International Department of Le Trot, the governing body of trotting in France, to promote the purchase, racing and breeding of Trotteur Français in Great Britain. It is, however, committed to the promotion of all breeds of trotter, according to the support and interest expressed.

TROTBritain was initially formed as an Association in November 1993 and is now a not-for-profit company (TROTBritain 2018 Ltd) limited by guarantee.
