Welcome to the BHS Career Pathways

Update 20th May:

Following the UK Government's amended Covid-19 restrictions update on the 11th May, we can provide the following update for candidates.


Whether you want to gain professional, industry recognised qualifications to spring-board your equine career or you simply want to learn more about horses and improve your skills for personal achievement there’s a pathway for you.

Our world-leading BHS Career Pathways offer you the opportunity to progress your career with horses and learn practical, real-world skills within a structured platform. As part of your journey we’re here to guide, advise and support you through every stage of your development towards getting equine jobs and equine careers in the future.

If you are not working towards a career with horses, and simply want to develop your knowledge and skills or improve your confidence, our Challenge Awards are for you. Learn all about horse care, lungeing and riding from the basics through to more advanced techniques.


Following UK Government announcement on COVID-19, 17th March 2020

The British Horse Society has been monitoring the Government’s guidance to protect people during the Covid-19 outbreak. We recognise this is a challenging and worrying time for individuals in the industry both professionally and personally. We have created an online hub where we have compiled advice & information regarding the current situation, following the Governments guidance. View here.

As a result we will be cancelling or postponing all BHS Assessments, CPD activity, Safeguarding and First Aid courses until the end of June 2020. As a result all APCs and Approved Centres will be able to extend the window for maintaining CPD, safeguarding and first aid requirements until 31 December 2020. On line safeguarding provisions will continue.

The BHS Education Team are contacting all candidates and delegates booked to assessments or first aid and safeguarding courses before the end of June 2020 to arrange a transfer to an alternative date later in the year. If you have a CPD course booked please contact the organiser (this may be your BHS Regional Manager or an external organisation) to discuss a refund or transfer.

If you have any questions, please contact or 02476 840508.
