If you're looking for a strong bond with a healthy, happy horse, the Challenge Awards are perfect for you. Learn how to care for horses, develop hands-on, practical skills and get stuck in with the day-to-day tasks. It doesn’t matter what previous experience you have with horses, or if you’re a complete beginner. All you need is enthusiasm and a love for horses! You do not even need to own your own horse.


Enjoy Riding


We can help you find somewhere to learn to ride, improve your skills, learn a new discipline or simply enjoy riding out. By choosing a BHS Approved Centre, you’ll know you’re in safe hands.


British Riding Clubs

We exist to provide support and encouragement to amateur riders of all levels from the dedicated competitor to the leisure rider.
