is very important that you bring your hat to the first session so that it can be checked to make sure that it fits properly, if you are purchasing a new hat it is also very important that it is one of standards above, if you do not have a new standard then it will be possible to hire one from the yard for the exam.
There are two books that all candidates must have:
The Highway Code and the British Horse Society Riding and Road Craft / Riding and Road Safety Manual (12 th edition, published by the BHS). The first is available from any decent bookshop, the latter from your local horse shops or the BHS.
These books provide essential information for the exam. You need to know all the rules, Road signs and junction markings in the Highway Code with the exception of motorway signs.
You do not need to know the carriage driving or side saddle section of the BHS manual. In the back of the BHS manual are sample questions any of which you may be asked in the theory.
If you have a previous edition of the manual it is advisable to get the latest one, there are a few different questions and hat standards have changed.
Please check with the BHS for current exam fees. Application form can be downloaded @ www.bhs.org.uk
