BHS Stage 5 Lunge will assess your ability to lunge an unknown horse on the flat with empathy and authority. You will be asked to assess and evaluate the horse you are working with, recognising strengths and limitations in their performance.

Important Information: BHS Stage 5 Lunge is currently assessed as part of BHS Stage 5 Ride. 

This award will require you to assess the individual horse you are working with to ensure an effective lungeing session. The horse may be of any size, type, sex or age, from three years and capable of work quality from limited to very good. The horses may be of any level of fitness and any level of training and experience.

You will:

  • Be able to use exercises to aid improvement of horses on the lunge
  • Show a clear understanding of systematic training of horses
  • Be assessed on your ability to plan development and future training for the horse
