Professional exam training courses

Wildwoods has a long history of delivering training courses to both industry professionals and individuals looking to develop their own skills.

As a British Horse Society and Association of British Riding Schools registered centre we can deliver a range of courses from both organisations.

British Horse Society Exam Training

We have decided to follow the BHS Challenge Awards route which will qualify all participants for a direct entry to BHS Stage 2 Care, Lunge and Ride. Some riders may be more advanced and wishing to jump, so groups will be split accordingly. The BHS Stage 1 / Stage 2 course will run for 15 weeks on Fridays from 18.00 – 20.30  8th April – 19th August @ £1050 for the complete course (@ £70 p/wk) or £80 per session. The course will cover the seven Silver awards. The Ride Out Safely, which has for the present replaced the Ride Safe Award, will be run seperately at additional cost (dates to be advised). Go to the BHS website link to find out more:
