British Horse Society Stage One Training Thursday Evenings 7-9PM
We are now able to offer British Horse Society stage one training on Thursday evenings from 17th September. The course will be open to those age fourteen and above whom are competent in canter. The British Horse Society stage one is aimed at those wanting a career in horses or for those wanting to increase their knowledge to improve their horse husbandry, it is also suitable for those considering horse ownership for the first time.
The course will follow and meet the criteria required for passing the stage one exam. During the first hour of the two hour session the stable management units will be covered. These will include both practical and theory lectures, in our lecture room and out on the yard. The British Horse Society Stage one syllabus covers the day to day care of both he stabled and the grass kept horse. Our course will aim to provide our learners with adequate knowledge to care for a horse to a high standard and to improve horse welfare.
The training for the riding section will take place 8-9PM. The training will take place in our indoor arena so no need to worry about the weather! During the riding session our learners will be provided with a suitable horse for their level of riding and one that matches their height and weight. During the riding session learners will gain the knowledge to improve the horses way of going, exercises will be set accordingly to the riders experience. The session will aim to improve riders effectiveness, balance and co ordination whilst working with and without stirrups on a variety of horses. Riders will progress to working over poles and developing and improving the two and three point position.
Here at Cheshire Riding School we have a variety of horses who work to improve riders right from the beginning through to British Horse Society stage four, so we have horses suitable for all. Unfortunately we have a weight limit of thirteen stone. The cost of the training does not include the exam fee, which is paid directly to the British Horse Society. More information on the exam syllabus and structure can be found on their website.
