BHS Stage 1 Care will provide you with an understanding of the responsibilities of working safely on a stable yard with empathy towards both horses and colleagues.
The award assesses your knowledge and practical skills when carrying out routine tasks, such as mucking out, bedding down and providing food and water. You will be asked to handle horses inside the stable and outdoors, apply and remove rugs, groom, lead a horse in hand and hold a horse for inspection.
And also to ride in balance, in a group and within a school environment.
You will develop an understanding of riding position and have an awareness of your own horse’s needs.
These courses run for 6 weeks.
