BHS Stage 1 Training

5 Feb 2016

Training people and horses since the early 1970s, Wellington Riding is one of the UK’s biggest and best-known equestrian centres. Set in 300 acres of the Duke of Wellington’s beautiful Hampshire estate, we are a British Horse Society Approved Riding School, Livery Yard and ‘Where to Train’ Centre to BHSI.

The BHS Stage One is suitable for anyone aged 14 years and over who cares for and/or rides horses regularly. It is designed to give you a good foundation of equine knowledge and a solid base on which to build your riding skills. 

Why should you do the BHS Stage 1? 

Working towards and completing a qualification is a great way to learn new skills and increase your motivation and self-confidence.  The skills and knowledge you acquire whilst working towards this qualification will contribute to the increased safety for yourself and horses. The Stage One is also the first rung on the professional ladder of BHS qualifications, and is itself a recognised qualification.
