For theoretical training, we would like to make you aware of some other training opportunities you may wish to take up.
Recently, Jan Roche (BHS Area Representative) and Alan Hiscox (BHS Director of Safety) were in Jersey and Laura Speller met with them alongside Cilla Perchard to discuss exams and training in the Island.
As a result, it is now planned to hold BHS Progressive Riding Tests Series (PRT) locally. The PRT is a practical course for anyone wanting to improve or test their horsey knowledge, those wanting to set a goal or challenge themselves to progress their skills or for potential or current horse riders/owners.
On completion of levels 1-6 candidates have direct entry into the BHS Stage 2 Care (must also complete BHS Ride Safe Exam to have direct entry to Stage 2 Riding) and it is currently planned to hold the PRT tests in Jersey in August 2017.
BHS Stage 1 & 2 training has been running since the beginning of 2017 and there are already a number of people who would like to do the PRTs.
Laura Speller and Penny Cruttwell are offering JRC members the opportunity to participate in this programme and more info can be found using this link or by contacting Laura Speller directly.
