The British Horse Society has introduced junior versions of the BHS Progressive Riding Tests

The British Horse Society (BHS) has introduced a programme of riding tests for young riders aged around 6-11 years. The junior Progressive Riding Tests will take place at BHS-approved riding schools, with riders examined by BHS Registered Instructors.

The established BHS Progressive Riding Tests provide a progressive learning programme in riding and stable management for riders of all abilities.

There are five tests in both riding and stable management. These sections can be taken separately but candidates are only awarded a badge and certificate once they have completed both sections.

Designed primarily for the leisure rider, the Junior Progressive Riding Tests can lead on to the BHS exams system for those wanting to take professional qualifications in the future.

For more information about how to take the BHS Junior Progressive Riding Tests, contact your local BHS approved riding school. A list of riding schools is available from the BHS website www.bhs.org.uk or contact (tel: 08701 202244).
