  2. Horse Knowledge Care and Riding Stage 1

    Taking our exams is a great way of improving your equine skills and knowledge and gaining recognised qualifications.

    This qualification will provide you with the competencies to apply basic principles of horse care. Working under supervision, you will have basic knowledge and practice of looking after a well-mannered horse in the stable and at grass. You will be capable of riding an experienced horse or pony in an enclosed space. You must be at least 14 years old to take this exam.

  3.  

    When you have achieved the Stage 1 Horse Knowledge, Care and/or Riding Certificate you will be able to progress to BHS Stage 2 Certificate in Horse Knowledge, Care and/or Riding. The Stage 1 certificate is recognised in its own right and provides a benchmark standard to employers. It is also a component part of The British Horse Society Assistant Instructor Certificate.

  4.  

    The BHS Stage exams are made up from units and small qualifications. You may choose to sit all the units leading to a qualification in one day, or you may prefer to ‘pick and mix’ units.

  5.  

    You will be able to ‘bank’ units and will receive unit certificates. When all the relevant units for a qualification have been achieved, the qualification certificate will be awarded. If you are unsuccessful in one unit you will only have to resit that unit again.

  6.  

    Candidates who book 10 or more weeks in advance of their exam date and who are unable to sit the complete exam due to some units being fully booked will be able to split the units over two days and will only be charged one complete fee.

  7.
