challenge awards


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.

Report Your Incidents

We’re dedicated to making the world safer for horses and those who care for them. You can report any near miss or incident you experience whilst riding either on the road or off-road. Every report counts to our national statistics which enables us to lobby Government and other organisations to improve safety for all.

2026 - Save Your Routes

On 1 January 2026, bridleways in England and Wales that aren’t formally recorded will be lost to the public. Our aim is to safeguard bridleways for public use so that equestrians today and in the future have safe off-road routes to ride on. The BHS is committed to saving as many bridleways as possible before 2026; but we need as many people as possible to help us out.
