BHS Spring 2018 Stage 2 Horse Knowledge Care and Riding Course

28 Jan 2018 - 9 May 2018


This course is designed to be taken as a revision course for candidates wishing to take the BHS Stage 2 assessment. The candidates should be regular, confident riders, able to jump to a height of 2ft 6ins and be able to lunge a quiet horse for exercise. Candidates must hold the BHS Stage 1 Riding and Horse Care and Knowledge certificate, NVQ L2 with schooling unit or the Pony Club B test. The BHS Ride Safe qualification is required before taking the Stage 2 Riding Assessment.

Each evening session will include two hours of care and one hour riding/lungeing. Six hour day sessions will be equivalent to two evening sessions while the four hour session will concentrate on riding, lungeing and the applicable tack/care knowledge.
