Essential Horse Knowledge Certificate

25 Jan 2016 - 4 Apr 2016


The Essential Horse Knowledge Certificates will be replacing the Horse Owners Certificates during 2015.  These new qualifications are held at two levels: Entry Level and Level One. 

They are suitable for learners of all ages. However, we recommend a minimum age of 12 years. You can enter at either level, although if you are new to horses or have limited background knowledge we recommend you start at Entry Level. 

The qualifications are specifically aimed at the first-time horse owner or carer, parents of horse owners, potential horse owners or anyone else interested in the care and welfare of horses.

The assessment of this qualification will be through a written assessment via exam papers produced directly by the BHS. On achievement of the qualification all certificates will be sent to the instructor, who will forward them on to candidates.

The course will run every Monday evening for 10 weeks, including the week of the exam. This is an entry level course. The Level one course will commmence in April.

Please note, the BHS Exam fee will be waived as this course registered under the HOOF participation project.

Time: 7.30pm - 9.30pm.

Cost: £12 per session.
