Each 1½ hour training session costs just £24 and takes place every Sunday between Midday and 1:30 pm Should you wish to go on and take professional qualifications, then you will have a chance to work towards the BHS Progressive Riding Tests tests during the session, which when completed, open the door to the BHS exams system. BHS Progressive Riding Tests The tests, which Severnvale is able to offer as it is a BHS Approved Riding Centre, are for all ages and standards; and combine both stable management and riding. These excellent tests are in six levels, which assess your riding and stable management knowledge and skills. They are a practical and fun way of learning and recognising your increased skill level; and you don’t have to be a member of the BHS to take part. Although the tests are designed for the leisure rider, they can lead in to the BHS exams system for those who decide to go on and take professional qualifications. Successful completion of the six tests can, subject to meeting a few other requirements, allow entry to the BHS Stage 2 Award.
