*Applications have now closed for 2017 and will reopen in the Spring 2018*

Is funding holding you back from achieving your dreams?
Do you have an exceptional trainee at your centre looking to gain the next step in their career, whether this is to gain their BHS Coach, BHS Senior Coach or BHS Performance Coach Awards?

The BHS Coach’s Scholarship is there to help those talented individuals wishing to achieve their goals.

As the largest provider of equestrian education and qualifications in the UK, we feel it is our duty to do all we can to inspire those individuals who will truly make a difference to the future of our industry.

We understand it can be financially difficult to reach the level of qualification required, when aspiring to develop a career in equestrianism. This is often the stumbling block for many talented individuals, and we have taken steps to invest in this area to remove these barriers.

We are honoured to have received a wonderful legacy in Margot Tiffany’s name. This has been created by many donations in her memory. Together with our own fundraising efforts, in its first year we have supported 43 individuals with over £72,500 of funding to help them gain their BHS Coach, BHS Senior Coach and BHS Performance Coach Awards.

The aim of the scholarship is to increase the number of qualified BHS Coach, BHS Senior Coach and BHS Performance Coaches within the equestrian industry.

Each year, we will support the costs of training, relevant stage examinations and the first year as an Accredited Professional Coach (for candidates wishing to gain their BHS Coach award). 

It is our intention that the scholarship will enable individuals to train and gain industry experience to ensure they become well-rounded and knowledgeable coaches.

BHS Coach Scholarship objectives:

  • To ensure we help supply our industry with well qualified and inspirational people
  • To support talented and well driven individuals to have a meaningful equestrian career
  • To provide support to our BHS Approved Centres

Each year the BHS will contribute significant funds to support the costs of training and assessments.

At the heart of this scholarship, we celebrate the life and legacy of Margot Tiffany BHS PCCH (I) and feel honoured to have received a legacy for this scholarship in her name in addition to further funds supported by many of Margot’s friends and family. The Margot Tiffany Legacy Fund contributes to the significant BHS fund being directed to support our future generation through this scholarship scheme.
