We hold several courses for fun and for qualifications.

ABRS Equestrian Care Award:

These tests are designed for riders who wish to help out with lessons at their riding school. Unlike the progressive rider tests in Equitation and Stable Management they are based on a log book and will be tested in-house by a member of staff over a period of time. There is no time limit for completion.

 The content of the log books is designed to encourage young helpers to develop increasing competence in assisting before, during and after lessons and a growing awareness of Health & Safety around the yard.

There are 3 levels of tests:

bulletEntry – minimum age 10
bulletIntermediate – minimum age 12
bulletSenior – minimum age 14

ABRS Stable Management and Equitation:

If you haven’t got your own horse but want to set yourself some goals to improve your riding. Don’t despair because the ABRS Progressive Rider Tests could be your perfect option.

The ABRS recognises that not everyone is lucky enough to own a horse.  Financial and time constraints mean that many riders rely on getting their ‘equine fix’ on a weekly basis, with a much looked-forward-to riding session at their local approved centre. ABRS Progressive Rider Tests have been specifically designed to provide a logical and progressive system of training.  They give adult and child riders a structured programme of realistic stepping stones to achieve their equestrian goals both in the saddle and on the ground. 

Stable Management - These Tests are designed to enhance knowledge of horse care and management.  Tests 1 to 10 cover the key aspects of looking after a horse.  The Tests provide invaluable know-how and confidence for parents of horse-mad children who are beginning to feel a little out of their depth when they are roped in to help out with a pony!

Equitation - Candidates begin with ABRS Test 1 of the Progressive Rider Equitation Tests, which encompasses the most basic aspects of learning to ride, progressing through to Test 10, which includes lateral work and riding a dressage test.  Jumping is not mandatory and alternative sections are available for those opting not to jump.

ABRS Progressive Rider Tests are an affordable way to increase your equestrian knowledge.

 

 ABRS Progressive Rider Tests A -

If you haven’t got your own horse but want to set yourself some goals to improve your riding. Don’t despair because the ABRS Progressive Rider Tests could be your perfect option.

A- E Tests  for children 7 – 12 years  - Tests A to E in Equitation and Stable Management provide a very gentle introduction for very young children or nervous riders. A formal certificate is awarded for every Test.  The Tests are recognised nationally as a respected standard of equestrian achievement.

ABRS Progressive Rider Tests are an affordable way to increase your equestrian knowledge.
