BHS Stage 3 Training

10 Apr 2016

Who is this qualification for, and what is needed to enter it? 

The BHS Stage Three is suitable for those aged 17 years and over. To enter the exam you will need to have passed your BHS Stage Two. The Horse Knowledge and Care section builds on the knowledge and skills acquired at Stage Two, and also includes: caring and fitting tack for the competition horse; and understanding horse conformation and physiology.

The riding is split into two sections; flat and jumping, which includes show jumping (3’3ft/1m) and cross country (3ft/91cm).

Why should you do the BHS Stage Three?

Your skills and knowledge will progress to enable you to take your place as a professional within the industry. The Stage Three is a component of the BHSAI certificate (link), our first level of instructor.  If you are looking for a career as a groom, you will be able to join the Register of Grooms.
