CHALLENGE AWARDS

If you're looking for a strong bond with a healthy, happy horse, the Challenge Awards are perfect for you.


You can learn how to care for horses, develop hands-on, practical skills and get stuck in with the day-to-day tasks.


It doesn’t matter what previous experience you have with horses, or if you’re a complete beginner. All you need is enthusiasm and a love for horses! You do not even need to own your own horse.


You will receive expert guidance and support from our BHS Approved Coaches and they will help you work towards and achieve your personal goals. You will be encouraged to enhance your knowledge at your own pace and advance on what's important to you.

But most importantly, you’ll have fun along the way!
