The Lingfield courses are aimed not only at those aiming to work in the industry but also at those who require practical and broad ranging information on equine management in real life – perhaps for the horse owner or yard manager. This provides the student with a genuine and workmanlike knowledge as opposed to providing a more restrictive career pathway for students whose aim is purely to achieve exam results and qualifications.
The benefits of this combined programme are:
You have the confidence that the authors of these courses have BHS professional qualifications and personal experience – they have been there and done it – they speak from experience not just from a classroom lecture podium. They have trained and backed young horses, they have trained and assessed BHS Stages exam candidates, they have taught novice and experienced riders over a number of years, they have ridden and competed – some to Grand Prix level. You also have security in the knowledge that Lingfield Correspondence has been a professional BHS based Training Provider since 1996.
Ideal for NVQ : BHS Stages : ABRS Levels : UK Coaching qualifications : Livery Yard Managers
