BHS Participation Project
This new project is aimed at getting more people involved in equestrianism, as well as helping those already enjoying their passion to gain further in-depth knowledge, confidence and skills. In addition, it will help more people gain qualifications that will enable them to enjoy riding to the full. Find out more about the BHS Participation Project and see how you can get involved.
Area Training Grants
Every year there is a fantastic opportunity for each BRC area to gain two generous grants. These grants benefit clubs and members within each area. The grants can only be applied for and administered by the area representative.
Grants have previously been used in a wide variety of ways including training clinics in all disciplines.
Here are some other ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- Trailer towing tests
- Confidence building clinic/NLP – sports psychology for the rider
- Riding Test and Style Jumping Demo evening
- Team building day for members or volunteers
- ‘Have a Go’ day
- Equine behaviour/psychology talk or demo
- Yoga on horseback – improving rider fitness and balance bitting clinic
