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 person who takes overall responsibility for the training and the course must be a member of the BHS Register of Instructors and will have attended a standardisation training course. The assessment of this qualification will be through a written assessment via exam papers produced directly by the BHS. All certificates will be sent to the instructor, who will forward them on to candidates.
Please note, this training is only open to Instructors on the BHS register.
